County Commissioners Mike Kerschner, Tyler Shuff, Tony Paradiso

In the past several years, our community has seen explosive economic development and overall growth because of the spirit, hard work and dedication of the entrepreneurs and community leaders who call Seneca County home. We at the commissioners' office take great pride in working to cultivate an environment that is ripe for this type of growth. It is not our role to create jobs, but to find ways to contribute to a business-friendly community. This consistent, sustained focus has helped to produce a community that has so much to offer, and we can't wait for you to experience it for yourself! As commissioners, we have had a front row seat to experience the economic and cultural evolution of the community, but we are also proud to say that we never forget about our history and natural landmarks. No matter what reason you are here in Seneca County, we're confident you will find something memorable. From our thriving restaurants and entertainment options to our beautiful county and city parks, there is something here for everyone! We believe after spending time here, you'll come to understand why we wholeheartedly believe that Seneca County is a great place to live, work and play. It is an exciting time to be a resident or a visitor to Seneca County, as we continue to improve and evolve. It's difficult to put into words how proud we are of this community. We hope that you'll take the time to see for yourself so you can craft your own story. We know that you'll enjoy the people, places and experiences that make Seneca County special.

Seneca Caverns Join us for a unique experience at Seneca Caverns – Ohio’s Greatest Natural Underground Adventure! Get a peek at what is under the ground that we walk on every day. Walk the natural stone steps and pathways that will lead you through seven rooms or levels. Feel the temperature cool as you progress into the cavern. The largest room is 250 feet in length. At the lowest level, 110 feet below the surface, see Ole’ Mist’ry River; the crystal-clear flowing stream which is part of the vast groundwater system underlying the surrounding region. You will be amazed as you enjoy this very unique tour! Seneca Caverns has been retained close to its original, natural, wild state, this subterranean tour is truly a unique and educational experience youwill always remember. After the tour, try your hand at mining just like they did in frontier days at the Seneca Mining Company. This “gem” is a fully operational sluice with flowing water. Here you can pan for gemstones, minerals, crystals, arrowheads, and fossils. Seneca Caverns may be the only cave of its kind open for public visitation. Seneca Caverns is a Registered Natural Landmark by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Seneca Caverns is open from May through October, rain or shine. Visit to plan your underground adventure!

Dine & Drink Enjoy a dinner out at a local restaurant or grab a cocktail with friends at a local brewery or bar.

The Renaissance of Tiffin Join us as we step back in time at The Renaissance of Tiffin located in the heart of Downtown Tiffin! You do not need a password to visit this 1920’s speakeasy. The Renaissance of Tiffin will take you back in time to when speakeasies, flappers and gangsters were the “cat’s pajamas”. The atmosphere, including whiskey barrel bar tops and the 1920’s style furniture, Persian rugs, and staff dressed in “Glad Rags” coupled with the wide variety of “giggle water” will have you “hitting on all eights!” Master bartenders craft cocktails the old-fashioned way using the freshest ingredients. Be sure to try our seasonal cocktails! With over 300 types of “giggle water”, you are sure to find a favorite. Be sure to check out Barrel 51 our private bar. Barrel 51 would have been the “cat’s meow” of gangster’s hideouts with its own Tommy Gun. Enjoy live music on Friday and Saturday nights! Visit to see our hours and secret location! You can share our address with your favorite guys and dolls, as long as you do not tell the coppers!
