Introduction to Crestline, Ohio

Crestline History

The community of Crestline was established following the arrival of the Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati railroad in 1850. Initially, a station was constructed in between the communities of Shelby and Galion which paved the way for the settlement of the community. Soon, the area had a general store and a post office. The early settlers thought the area was Ohio's watershed and hence christened it "Crest Line." Though the village was actually not on the watershed line, the name stuck and later became "Crestline." Over the years, the economy of the region has diversified and various businesses and industries are now based in the village.
