BATH TOWNSHIP
Pg. 709

     This township is located in the extreme northwestern part of the county, in township 2, range 8, and is bounded on the north by Montgomery and Clarke counties, on the east by Miami and Xenia Townships, on the south by Xenia and Beaver Townships, and on the west by Montgomery County.   Beaver Creek has its source in section fifteen, thence flows southwardly, entering Beaver Creek Township.  A small creek runs diagonally across the northwestern part.  Another creek has its origin in the northwest quarter of section three, flows southwardly to the southwest quarter of section nine; thence in a northwestern direction to section sixteen; thence southwest, forming a pond just east of the village of Fairfield.  From this pond the water is conducted by an artificial channel to the southwest corner of the township.  These streams and their many tributaries, which owe their origin to the numerous springs, supply the demands of agriculture and manufacture.  The surface is generally level, interspersed with knolls and mounds, of which Reed's Hill, located in the center of sections fourteen and fifteen, is the most conspicuous.  The soil is fertile and productive, as is attested by the large grain shipments.  The Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, and the New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio Railroads, running almost parallel with each other, cross the township on the west, beginning at a point one mile east of the center of the northern boundary, and running diagonally to a point one mile north of the extreme southwestern corner, they furnish the necessary transportation, and add to the general development of the community.  According to the census, the population in 1870 was 2,684; in 1880, 2,603.
