Village of Rio Grande

Established July 6, 1874

Welcome to the Village of Rio Grande!     Matt Easter, Mayor



The Village of Rio Grande was established on July 6, 1874.  We are just off of U.S. Route 35 in western Gallia County, in beautiful southeastern Ohio.  Our town has a population of approximately 830 people as of the last census taken in 2010.  Upon entering Rio Grande, you will see the Welsh pride displayed by the Welsh flags that adorn the streets. 


Rio Grande is home to many residents, businesses, and churches, as well as the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College and the Rio Grande Elementary School.
