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.


In light of the ongoing health concerns affecting all communities, we wanted to let you know that the health and safety of our Morgan Township residents and community is our top priority.

We're carefully following all appropriate safety procedures as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). To help protect our residents and community, while still trying to conduct Township business, we have put in place several new policies.

We have CANCELLED all events and activities scheduled at the Morgan Township Administration Building and the Walt Westrich Hall thru April 30, 2020. 

The Morgan Township Fire Department and EMS, Fiscal Officer, Zoning Administrator and Road Crew are still working and available should you need any of these services.

Please do not hesitate to call 911 if you have an emergency. However, please inform the dispatcher if you have a fever, cough, or experiencing shortness of breath.

The Township Trustees will meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at 7:00 pm, however the meetings will NOT be open to the public. We have set up a link for Morgan Township Residents to view the meeting live. Please click here at 7:00 pm on Mondays to watch the Trustee Meeting.

As always, should you have questions or concerns, please contact any of the Morgan Township Trustees.We will continue to update you as we know more, but for now we hope you, our residents of Morgan Township, and your loved ones stay healthy.

It is with much regret that The Shandon Civic Association and The Shandon Congregational  Church have decided to CANCEL the Annual Shandon Strawberry Festival for 2020. 

Due to the uncertainty of how long restrictions will be placed on events and activities and the spread of the Corona Virus, there will be no Strawberry Festival this year. Vendors who have already booked spots for this year's Strawberry Festival will have their money refunded. 

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and remember to visit us at the Shandon Strawberry Festival in 2021!
