History[edit]

Amelia was not officially platted.[6] The name Amelia was adopted in honor of Amelia Bowdoin, a well known and popular tollgate operator on the Ohio Turnpike - Main Street, today State Route 125. Her home still stands at 94 W. Main St., across the street from where it stood when it was a tollhouse.[7] A post office called Amelia has been in operation since 1836.[8]

In May 2009, Amelia survived an initiative on dissolving the village into Pierce and Batavia Townships.[9][10]
