Welcome to Morgan Township!


Morgan Township, one of thirteen in the county, is located in the southwestern corner of Butler County, Ohio, on the state line with Indiana. The township covers an area of 36 square miles. 

Morgan Township was divided from Ross Township by the Butler County Commissioners on March 4, 1811. Named for General Daniel Morgan, an officer in the American Revolutionary War, it is one of six Morgan Townships statewide. The township is bordered on the south by the Hamilton County townships of Crosby and Harrison; on the southwest by Dearborn County, Indiana; on the west by Whitewater Township, Franklin County, Indiana; on the north by Reily Township; on the northeast by Hanover Township; and on the east by Ross Township. Originally settled in 1801 by Welsh immigrants from Llanbrynmair, Montgomeryshire, Wales.  In later years, German settlers also came into the township.


Plan to attend the July Historical Society Meeting on Saturday July 20, 2019, 10:00 am at the Morgan Township Administration Building when Dr. Sara Butler shares with us the uniforms worn by American servicemen during World War 1. Dr. Butler, recipient of the 2018 Butler County Historical Society's Distinguished Historian Award, will also be discussing the contributions made by women to the War effort, how their work influenced their clothing and have a variety of sample  clothing on display. 


The Okeana Flood Project has now been completed. As many Morgan Township Residents are aware, for years during periods of heavy rain, the land in Okeana between Cincinnati Brookville and Okeana Drewersburg Roads was prone to flooding. Your Morgan Township Trustees worked to secure a grant to pay for the Okeana Flood Project with no expense to the Township residents. 

The Morgan Township Trustees would like to thank the residents affected by the flooding for their patience while the project was being completed and to the Butler County Community Development for the block grant. 

In late 2018, the Morgan Township Trustees approved a resolution to post the video recordings of all meetings online. We are in the process of uploading previous meetings as quickly as we can. We have made all 2019 meetings available. You can view the recordings online by going to Trustees -> Meeting Videos.
