Rossford is one of five cities in Northwest Ohio’s Wood County. Our Convention and Visitors Bureau works closely with you to provide you with the perfect Midwest Ohio trip! 

Rossford is a true melting pot of immigrants who came to work at Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company, founded by Edward Ford.  In 1898, Ford purchased 173 acres along the Maumee River to build the Edward Ford Plate Glass Company.  As workers came to the factory, Ford named the resulting town “Rossford” by combining the last name of his second wife, Caroline Ross, with his. While the small town grew to a city, Rossford has always retained that perfect Americana atmosphere that both residents and visitors have come to love.
