Location of Brandt, Ohio

Brandt is an unincorporated community in southern Bethel Township, Miami County, Ohio, United States. It was formed on the National Road (today U.S. Route 40) as a stop for travelers on the road and for road toll-takers. It was laid out in 1839 by the Voorhis brothers. A toll gate was located at the east end of Brandt where US 40 and State Route 201 intersect today. Toll-takers were appointed by the governor and earned $30 a month.

The village is home to the Brandt Methodist Church and the Brandt Lutheran Church (ELCA). A newly formed church is located in the former Bethel Township Grange hall. At one time the village had two grocery stores and an active fraternal presence with the International Order of Oddfellows being housed in a two-story frame structure. That local organization merged into the I.O.O.F. in nearby Tipp City. It was also the site of the Halderman Nursery.

Brandt is part of the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area.
