 Our County

 
​Brown County was founded in 1819 and named for Major General Jacob Brown, an officer in the War of 1812. The county has a total area of 493.45 square miles, and the principal communities include Aberdeen, Fayetteville, Georgetown, Hamersville, Higginsport, Mt. Orab, Ripley, Russellville, Sardinia and St. Martin.
 
Georgetown, the county seat, was the boyhood home of Ulysses S. Grant, and the Rankin House, located in Ripley, was the first established station of the underground railroad. Brown County is also rich in agriculture, with a history steeped in the tobacco industry and said to be the place of origin of White Burley tobacco.
 

 Our Work

 
​In each county, the highway maintenance workforce is comprised of highway technicians (HTs), auto technicians and office personnel. The HTs are the most visible of all ODOT employees, as they are the ones who are seen clearing the state highway system of snow and ice during the winter-weather months. In addition to this and responding to emergencies as needed, county maintenance crews perform other operations throughout the year, including:
  • Guardrail installation and repair
  • Pavement repair and resurfacing
  • Culvert replacement and drainage cleaning
  • Vegetation control, mowing and brush cutting
  • Litter control
  • Sign installation and pavement marking repair
The Brown County maintenance facility is located on S.R. 125 (State Street) in the village of Georgetown, just west of the junction with U.S. 68. The state highway system is comprised of 14 state routes and four federal routes; they include S.R. 32, S.R. 41, S.R. 123, S.R. 125, S.R. 131, S.R. 134, S.R. 221, S.R. 251, S.R. 286, S.R. 353, S.R. 505, S.R. 756, S.R. 763, S.R. 774, U.S. 50, U.S. 52, U.S. 62 and U.S. 68.
