ABOUT COLERAIN TOWNSHIP
Colerain Township was first settled in the spring of 1790 by a surveyor, John Dunlap, who named the settlement after his birthplace of Coleraine, Ireland. The settlement, Fort Coleraine, commonly called Dunlap’s Station, was located on the bend of the great Miami River several miles below the bridge to Ross, Ohio.
In 1794, Coleraine was established as a Township. The “e” at the end of Coleraine was dropped sometime later, Americanizing the name Colerain. German immigrants farmed the southwestern portion between 1840 and 1870, heavily influencing the township’s cultural and architectural traditions. Today, Colerain Township is one of the largest townships in the state of Ohio encompassing 42.9 square miles while serving 58,499 residents. Colerain Township is located north of Cincinnati and is conveniently situated between two major interstates providing easy access to our residential and business communities.
Residents and businesses of Colerain Township receive the benefit of a full-service township providing a variety of services including Fire and EMS, Parks and Services, Planning and Zoning, Police, Public Works, Senior and Community Center.
