History & History Related Items

Before becoming the city of Huber Heights in 1981, the area was known as Wayne Township. Wayne Township was named for Major General Anthony Wayne who was a commander-in-chief in the army in 1792. It was created on 1 January 1810. The first privately owned utility company in Ohio was founded in 1956 by Charles H. Huber and during this same time period, he developed the first track of brick homes. Between 1956 and 1992, his company built 10,707 single family homes here. Also in the late 1950’s, I-70 was constructed through a portion of the township, bringing with it new growth and development with the population increasing by about 10,000 persons in just a ten year period.

The new city, Huber Heights, named for Charles Huber, was created in November 1981 with a modified council-manager form of government. Many businesses and firms have come to the area contributing to the economic success and growth. Huber Heights has continued to grow to over 40,000 residents by the early 2000’s.

The motto, Come Grow With Us, was adopted in 1998. Some of the other mottos for the community have been America’s Largest Community of Brick Homes, and The Friendly Community.
