Greene County was formed in 1803 from Hamilton and Ross Counties, and its territory extended to the northern state line. Champaign County was formed in 1805 from the northern section of Greene County. In 1818, a small amount of territory was taken from Greene County to form Clark County. Greene County's territory has remained the same since that time.
The county seat is Xenia (pronounced "ZEEN-yuh'). Other cities are Fairborn (home of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) and Beavercreek, the county's newest and fastest-growing city. Villages include Bellbrook, Bowersville (birthplace of Norman Vincent Peale), Cedarville, Clifton (birthplace of Isaac Funk of Funk & Wagnalls fame and former OSU coaching legend Woody Hayes), Jamestown, Spring Valley and Yellow Springs.
