Reading, Oh

In 1794, a German immigrant by the name of Abraham Voorhees moved his family from their home near Philadelphia, building a large double log cabin along the west bank of the Millcreek in Sycamore Township. Shortly after, a visitor from Reading, PA (Harvey Redinbo) was pleased with the land that Voorhees had acquired and purchased his own land, in the area of Hunt Road and Columbia Avenue. This early settlement (1797) was known as Voorhees-Town, but was changed to Reading in the honor of Redinbo’s hometown, and the birthplace of his father-in-law (William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania – born in Reading, England).

Reading was incorporated as a village in 1851.

Reading's public school system includes two neighborhood schools, Central Elementary and Hilltop Elementary, which both serve Pre-K through fifth grade. Reading Middle School is co-located with Central Elementary and houses grades 6-8. Reading High School serves grades 9-12 and is the home of the 2003 division III state boys basketball champions.

Reading includes a Roman Catholic all-girl's high school, Mount Notre Dame High School, where the daughter of Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman was one of the first students. Two Catholic elementary schools, Sts. Peter and Paul Academy and St. Nicholas Academy, serve students in grades 1-8.
