Understand edit

Fredericktown is a small village located in the northeastern part of Ohio, approximately 28 kilometers northwest of Lisbon, which serves as the administrative center of the county. Columbus, the state capital, is situated about 281 kilometers to the southwest. Fredericktown is an unincorporated township within St. Clair Township.

The settlement of this area began in 1795 when Timothy Sheerer first established himself there. The name "Fredericktown" originated in 1801 when it was officially settled and named after George Frederick, who operated a sawmill and gristmill in the area. Little Beaver Creek, a tributary of the Ohio River, flows nearby, and Ohio State Route 170 passes through the region.
