Geography

Located in the southern part of the county, it borders the following townships:

It is bisected by the Little Miami River

The village of Morrow lies entirely within the township.

History

Salem Township was established June 8, 1818 from Hamilton Township and originally consisted of the part of Salem south of the Little Miami and what is now Harlan Township. By a special act of the Ohio General Assembly of March 16, 1860, Harlan Township was separated from it and Salem was renamed Corwin Township. Later that year the Warren County Commissioners renamed the township Salem and took a portion of Union across the Little Miami and attached it to Salem.[5] Salem Township is in both the Symmes Purchase and the Virginia Military District.

Government

The township is governed by a three-member board of trustees, who are elected in November of odd-numbered years to a four-year term beginning on the following January 1. Two are elected in the year after the presidential election and one is elected in the year before it. There is also an elected township fiscal officer,[6] who serves a four-year term beginning on April 1 of the year after the election, which is held in November of the year before the presidential election. Vacancies in the fiscal officership or on the board of trustees are filled by the remaining trustees.

Public services

Most of the township is the Little Miami Local School District, but a part north of the Little Miami River is in the Lebanon City School District. Salem Township is within the Morrow, Lebanon, and Clarksville telephone exchanges and the Morrow post office's territory.
