The City of Chester, established in 1907, is located at the northernmost point of Hancock County, directly along the banks of the Ohio River. The small-town atmosphere and vibrant community make Chester a charming place for visitors to explore. 

Once home to Rock Springs Park, an amusement park that operated in Chester from 1897-1970, the city still has a unique attraction for visitors: the World’s Largest Teapot. Originally used as a giant Root Beer Keg, the spout, lid, and handle were added to honor the region’s history of pottery manufacturing. Connie’s Corner is a perfect spot to grab a family meal before heading to Frank’s Pastry Shop for some homemade baked-goods. Stop by Chestnut Hill Candle Company for locally made gifts and fragrances.Chester City Park is a staple of the community, offering pavilions, boat docks, a skate park, and softball field. Concerts are held in the park throughout the summer as well. Tomlinson Run State Park is just a short drive from Chester featuring activities such as hiking, boating, camping, golfing, and more!
