History of Perry Township

With the then-named village of "Salemtown" incorporated before the Township, many people became confused about where to travel to in order to participate in elections. Since Salem was incorporated in 1830 at the intersection of Salem, Butler, Goshen and Green Townships, to avoid further confusion, residents of Salem petitioned county commissioners for the creation of a separate township around the area, to be named Perry Township.

The area includes four sections of each of the original four Townships and was finally incorporated by county officials in 1832. The first elections and installation of Perry Township Trustees was held in 1833. Perry Township is named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who led the United States to Victory in the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. After his victory Commodore Perry proclaimed in the famous phrase "We have met the enemy and they are ours".
