Welcome to the City Of Van Wert, Ohio!
In the Midwest heartland, Van Wert is poised for the future. Industrial and commercial development sites are available with complete city services. A new housing development on the southwest side of town supports our future growth. This is located within walking distance of all three public schools. Augmenting our educational facilities is the Brumback Library. The Brumback was the first public library in the United States and is ranked one of the nation’s best libraries.
Our state-of-the-art educational facilities include a professionally managed Performing Arts Center featuring renowned entertainment throughout the season.
For those students or adults who choose to enter the workforce or desire enhanced training, Vantage Career Center offers a wide range of technical training programs addressing the country-wide need for skilled employees.
Van Wert is a great place to raise a family. We are very proud of the many civic organizations like Main Street, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Chamber of Commerce for the many volunteer hours associated with many events offered each year.
Additionally, Van Wert offers many opportunities for integration into the community through memberships in one of the many service organizations, such as Rotary, Optimist, and the Van Wert Service Club. The YMCA, YWCA, and many houses of worship in the community all contribute to the growth of health and spiritual values within our youth.
