Bellefontaine has earned a prestigious honor.

Ohio Magazine recently announced the five great places to live, work, and visit in the state. The cities are Bellefontaine, Athens, Kent, Perrysburg, and Versailles.

These cities will be featured in Ohio Magazine’s annual Best Hometowns issue.

To determine this year’s honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations in the spring and conducted visits across the state over the summer. The editors evaluated finalists in six categories – Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment, and Culture and Heritage – to help make their selections.

The magazine’s editors chose Bellefontaine for its impressive downtown redevelopment efforts, thriving sense of community, and appreciation for preserving local history.

Each of Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns honorees will be featured in both the November/December 2022 and July/August 2023 issues of the magazine and online at giving readers a look at what makes each community special.

Bellefontaine Mayor Ben Stahler reflected on the recognition, “This honor is to be shared by everyone, throughout our community, for the teamwork and enthusiasm that clearly sets our community apart from others.”
