Christa Kozy with Hartville Marketplace stopped into the Gary Rivers Show to talk about the community of Hartville and it recently being named as Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometown in NE Ohio.

Ohio Magazine recognizes five great places to live, work and visit.

Fremont, Gallipolis, Hamilton, Hartville and Newark will be recognized as great places to live, work and visit in our 14th annual Best Hometowns issue this November.

To determine the honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations and conducted site visits across the state in the spring and summer. The editors evaluated the nominees in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment and Culture and Heritage — to help finalize their selections.

Each of Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns will be featured in the November, January and July issues.
