  • Leave a legacy for future generations through the preservation of the history, heritage, and the physical structures of the Village of Rendville.
  • Revitalize and economically develop the Village of Rendville through civic tourism.
  • Collaborate with regional institutions of education and local history and cultural community organizations to create, both formal and informal educational opportunities for all stakeholders.
Growth

Our community, our stories, our history.

We have many long-term goals, but the first and foremost is to create a space for learning, gathering, and sharing the unique ethnic and labor history of Rendville. We hope that by restoring and revitalizing The Little White House, we can reach this goal.

Our Town

Rendville is the smallest incorporated town in Ohio, and is home to significant
African American history and a compelling story of ethnic diversity.  Rendville is located in the Wayne National Forest, on State Route 13 in southern Perry County (25 miles north of Athens, 25 miles south of Zanesville, and 65 miles southeast of Columbus). Our town’s population stood at 34 in the 2010 census..
