News from Berkshire Township

Community and Service since 1806

• Have you ever attended a Township Trustee Meeting?

• Have you attended one within the last year?

• Have you used the walking trail at the Township Hall?

• Do you know we are building a park?

Would you like to be more involved in the township and take “ownership” of your community? If the answer is yes, you’re invited to join us for any township meetings, or volunteer on our community park committee.

Berkshire affords us the convenience of living in a location convenient to the city, yet offers a peaceful, rural setting when you come home at night. We would love to meet our residents and hope you’ll join us at a Trustee Meeting in the near future.

Volunteers Make the Difference!

Early on a Sunday morning in July a hearty group of volunteers showed up at the park to help spread mulch in the garden. It looks great and the plants are in, so stop by and check it out when you can. Thanks to all who helped. You are making a real difference in our community.

Calling all historians!

We are looking for some vintage images of Berkshire Township. We don’t need your originals, but if you have photos of scenes in the township with historic buildings, farm equipment, family members, etc. and you’d be willing to have them reproduced and hung in the Township Hall, we’d love to talk. Please contact Shawna at 614-369-2601 or at

Money, Money, Money, MONEY!

A recent insert in the Delaware Gazette served as a good reminder that there might be unclaimed monies sitting in an account with YOUR name on them! No strings attached, this website is sanctioned by state governments for residents’ benefit. Please visit
