State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today recognized the Village of Lexington for its bicentennial celebration with the presentation of a resolution during session of the Ohio House of Representatives at the Statehouse. Among those there to receive the resolution was Councilman Tony Vero.

Lexington has been celebrating the occasion throughout the year with events taking place every month. It was in 1913 that Lexington had its first postmaster, marking this as the village’s 200th anniversary.

“I was very pleased to highlight this historical moment for the Village of Lexington during today’s Ohio House Session. Communities like this are what makes Richland County such an attractive place to live and work,” Representative Romanchuk said. “The residents of Lexington have put much work into the bicentennial celebration, and they should be very proud.”
