About the Village

The Village of Fayetteville was founded in 1818 by Irish immigrant, Cornelius McGroarty, and later incorporated in 1868. At one time Fayetteville contained two churches, two schools, two hotels, several stores and saloons, two drug stores and had a monorail station that connected the village to the city of Cincinnati and further eastern locations.

It is located in Perry Township of Brown County, OH and is just over a 1/2 of a square mile with two major US Highways intersecting in the center of town; U.S. Route 68 & U.S. Route 50. It is governed by the Village Council and a Mayor. The Council is made up of six elected members and the Mayor serves as the seventh.

The village is made up of a small yet diverse community of over 330 residents, who have a strong sense of community and has always kept the village and each other at the core of their heritage. We welcome all visitors and new residents alike to grow and enjoy in the small town but big heart of Fayetteville.
