​​​Berkshire Township, Ohio; the Community with a Rural Lifestyle Convenient To City Amenities

Founded in 1806, Berkshire Township is located in Delaware County, Ohio. We enjoy rural living yet are only 25 minutes away from downtown Columbus. Conveniently served by the I-71 exit at US36-SR37, we are situated between the City of Delaware and the Village of Sunbury, and about five miles north of the city of Westerville. The Village of Galena lies within the Berkshire Township boundaries. Our location midway between Alum Creek State Park and Hoover Reservoir gives residents excellent opportunities to enjoy the spectacular outdoor recreational experiences provided by those preserves.

Our proximity to I-71 offers economic opportunities for growth and development and has attracted some of the nation's largest retail and residential developers. The Tanger Outlet Mall and the Northstar Community and Country Club are just two of the area's newer developments. A.D. Farrow, located at the I-71 interchange opened in our township in 2007. It is the oldest continuously operating Harley Davidson dealer in the U.S.

Berkshire Township is “on the grow” -  yet still fortunate to enjoy a decidedly rural feel, with many farms owned and operated by descendants of the families who founded the township in 1806.

We are part of the Big Walnut School System and the Olentangy School System, which are both rated  “excellent” or better within the state of Ohio. The BST&G Fire Company and the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office support our residents and businesses.

Feel free to contact us at 740-965-2992 or visit our township offices at 1454 Rome Corners Rd, Galena, 43021.
