Jeromesville is a village in Ashland County, Ohio, United States. The population was 562 at the 2010 census.

History[edit]

Jeromesville was platted in 1815 ( near the site of a former and abandoned Native-American village named "Jerometown").[6] It is named for Jean/John Baptiste Jerome, (a French-Canadian fur trader and pioneer settler), from whom, Christian Deardorf and William Vaughn purchased land and 'founded' a new pioneer village, (which was originally spelled "Jeromeville").[7][8][9] A post office has been in operation at Jeromesville since 1816.[10] [Note: the Native-American village of Jerometown is often attributed to be the same as "Mohican Johnstown"; however, the mid-1700s village named "Mohican Johnstown" was not at this same location.(see Lenape settlements)]

In 2018, Mayor Randy Spade founded the Jeromesville Junior Council, a group of 5th through 8th graders attending Hillsdale Local School District.[11] They are tasked with making Jeromesville a better place for both kids of today and the future. The group has had three Junior Mayors since coming into existence. They are:

July 2018 - August 2019: Landon C. Allis

August 2019 - May 2020: Alexis Luna

May 2020 - present: Hailey Stow

This is the first Junior Village Council codified into law in the State of Ohio.
