Lower Salem smallest village in Washington County

Lower Salem is the smallest incorporated area in Washington County and is located on Ohio 821 on the banks of Duck Creek.

Recent improvements include water lines extended to the village and the renovation and expansion of Lower Salem Commercial Bank, a central point to the downtown area because it also houses the Lower Salem Post Office.

Another favorite stopping point is the Duck Creek General Store, recently opened after being closed for 20 years.

Lower Salem Village Hall had to be repaired after flash flooding along Duck Creek sent water as high as the tops of the building's windows.

High on a hill overlooking the village is Salem-Liberty Elementary School, which is part of the Fort Frye school district. Emergency services are provided by the Washington County Sheriff's Office and a volunteer fire department.
