Summary

Trenton sits in northeastern Butler County about 20 miles north of Cincinnati. Its nickname is the ‘small town with a big heart’. With its roots as a farming village, Trenton was founded in 1799 by Michael Pearce. One of the first buildings was a hotel that offered a night’s rest to travelers going from the then state capital in Chillicothe to Miami University and points west. The Toll House still stands as a symbol of the city’s early history. Growth was slow in the village and it was not until 1971 that the population had reached the required 5,000 to be classified as a city. Over the past six years, Trenton has experienced a marked increase in new residential construction. A MillerCoors Brewery is located in Trenton and is an industry that has been growing in the region. This brewery is proud to state it has not sent any garbage to a landfill since 2009 and partners with local farmers to use 500 of its acres.
