Welcome to Morgan Township!

Upcoming:

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.

BUTLER COUNTY AUDITOR'S OFFICE 
PROPERTY MAPPING AND IMAGING PROJECT 

The Butler County Auditor’s Office has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. to begin taking new digital property photographs of the exterior of every residence and commercial property in Butler County as part of the Butler County Auditor's valuation reassessment process for tax year 2020. 

The project is set to start in early April, beginning with Morgan Township. The project will last for a total of approximately 20 weeks.  
 
Because your privacy is important, all photographs are taken from public right-of-way whenever possible. Project members are deputized to access driveways or private lanes, only when necessary to obtain an unobstructed image from the vehicle. There will be two vans; one with OH plates and one with MO plates, that will be clearly marked to convey their purpose. 

The Butler County Auditor's Office appreciates your patience and cooperation with this important project. 

If you have questions or would like more information regarding this project, please contact the Butler County Auditor’s Office at 513-887-3154 or go online at www.butlercountyauditor.org.
