About Wellington, OH
Some say the village was named after William Welling, a local resident, while others believe the name is derived from the title of the Duke of Wellington. Wellington was incorporated as a village in 1855. In 1858, the former American House Hotel (later torn down and replaced by Herrick Memorial Library) was the site of the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue. A group of men, both white and black and many from Oberlin, swarmed the hotel to rescue runaway slave John Price. He was being held by a US Marshal and his men, who intended to return him to his master in Kentucky.
