to Ironton, Ohio - The Gateway to Southern Ohio!
Situated on the Ohio River and the county seat of Lawrence County, Ironton is a city of opportunity. With direct access to the river, railroad, and major highways, we have a great number of resources that businesses are able to capitalize on.
Couple this opportunity with a rich history and you are met with a unique culture. We are the site of a number of major events throughout the year, such as being home to the longest continuously running Memorial Day Parade in the country. We also host Rally on the River, which brings thousands of visitors from far and wide to our city every August.
These are just some of the qualities that make Ironton unique. We are business friendly, we are home to award winning schools, and we are a close-knit community working together to move Ironton toward an even more prosperous future.
