History edit

Although the town was laid out under the name of "Waterford" in 1833, it was informally known as "Uhrich's Mill" after Michael Uhrich, a local mill operator, and in 1839 the town was officially renamed Uhrichsville. It benefitted from the Ohio and Erie Canal and later from the Pan Handle Railroad.[5] Railroad shops built at nearby Dennison later added further to Uhrichsville's growth.[6]

Uhrichsville Water Park opened in June 2008. It has heated pools and features slides, waterfalls, buckets, and a water jungle-gym.[7]
