Term 1/1/20 - 12/31/23

On behalf of Jacksonville Council, our administrative staff, employees and residents I would like to welcome you to Jacksonville, Ohio.

Settled by Oliver D. Jackson in 1880, Jacksonville is a small village of 400 nestled among the hills of Southeastern Ohio in Athens County. Our residents pride themselves on their talent, dedication and hard work.

We are served by the Trimble Local School District; home of the 2013 Ohio Football Division VII State Runner-Up Trimble Tomcats. We are also the home of the renowned Old Settler's Reunion. Please explore our website to find links for information about our town, its features and the surrounding area.
