Clermont County began operating a Records Center in 1998, within the old Williamsburg High School. The goal was to create an efficient, centralized facility that would help the county better organize, manage and preserve important public records. In 2005, the Records Center moved to its current location on Main Street in Batavia and has grown and evolved into a technology-driven operation, housing hundreds of thousands of electronic records in addition to maintaining 9,000 boxes of paper records and over 6,000 historical journals. The Records Center manages records for over 40 county offices and departments, providing consistency to the management of county information while maintaining compliance with the Ohio Revised Code. A new Records Center was constructed and opened its doors in July, 2019. This new facility will allow us to continue our mission of securely storing and preserving the records of Clermont County for generations to come.
