Mount Vernon was named “Best Hometown 2017-1018” by Ohio magazine, and for good reason. Mount Vernon was founded in 1805 and has all the charm of an older small city. Mount Vernon was actually named after George Washington’s home. Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman), famous for spreading apple seeds, actually owned two plots of land in Mount Vernon, Ohio, on which he established nurseries. Mount Vernon is also the county seat of Knox County, Ohio.
Mount Vernon is home to a very popular Christian liberal arts college, Mount Vernon Nazarene University. A very popular and unusual park is the Ariel-Foundation Park which is on land reclaimed from an old industrial site of a glass factory and quarries. This park has the Kokosing Gap Trail running right along side of it. The trail has a nice paved path that is great for hiking, walking, or biking. Knox County Historical Museum and Chapel Hill Golf Club are other popular spots in Mount Vernon.
