Introduction to Moraine, Ohio
Moraine was originally a part of the Van Buren Township and eventually formed part of the City of Kettering. The residents of Moraine seceded from Kettering in 1953, and Moraine was officially incorporated as a municipality in 1957. Later, parts of Miami and Jefferson townships were annexed to the city. The community came to be called Moraine because of glacial deposits found in the region.
