Washington Township, Ohio

Washington Township was founded around 1809-1810. It is the only township in Ohio to cover three counties - Delaware, Franklin, and Union. Washington Township encompasses approximately 26 square miles and has a residential population of 35,000 and a daytime population of approximately 60,000. What that means is that a lot of people work in the Township who do not live there.

The largest incorporated area of the Township is the City of Dublin, named in 2004 by Money Magazine as one of the "hottest" cities in the country. Dublin is headquarters to Fortune 500 companies Cardinal Health and Wendy's International. Dublin also is home to Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament and the internationally acclaimed Dublin Irish Festival.

Currently, the Township provides services to unincorporated areas in Franklin County as well as the City of Dublin. The unincorporated areas in Franklin County are located between the Scioto River and Madison County. Washington Township's unincorporated areas are largely farmland and single family houses in the western portion of the township, primarily between Cosgray Road and Madison County. Other areas include the town of Amlin, and smaller tracts in the vicinity of Hayden Run and Dublin Road.
