Pittsfield Township History
Pittsfield Township is the only Township of its name in the state of Ohio. Originally part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. The area saw its first settlers before 1813 but they did not stay permanently. The area saw growth in 1821 when Milton Whitney, one of the larger landowners in the area arranged for settlers to move in.
In 1831, Pittsfield Township separated from Wellington Township and the next chapter in our history was started. (Fact: Pittsfield Township gets its name from Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the original home of Milton Whitney).
After separating from Wellington Township the residents of the newly formed Pittsfield Township got together and formed our local government. To learn more about Pittsfield Township try checking out our local government website www.pittsfieldtwp.us
