Zaleski is a village in Vinton County, Ohio, United States. The population was 278 at the 2010 census.

History[edit]

Zaleski was laid out in 1856. It was named for Peter. F. Zaleski, a Polish-American official with the mining company that originally owned the town site.[4]

Six Native American mounds, built by the prehistoric Adena culture, were once located at Zaleski. Three have been destroyed,[5] but the others — known as the Markham, Ranger Station and Zaleski Methodist Church Mounds — are still in existence. Together these three compose the Zaleski Mound Group.[6]

Beginning in February 2014, Zaleski began construction on a public sewer plant project, making it only the third village in the county (after, McArthur and Hamden) to have a public waste facility.[7]
