About Cridersville

Our beautiful 120-acre campus lies along I-75 in northwest Ohio, midway between Lima and Wapakoneta. Tidy homes sit on friendly little streets with generous views of sky, woods, fields and water.

You’re only steps away from three fish-stocked lakes and paved paths for walking and biking. Enjoy the beauty of a rural retreat with ready access to town.
