About This Place
Amelia is a village in Clermont County, Ohio, United States. The population was 2,752 at the 2000 census.
The name Amelia was adopted in honor of Amelia Bowdoin, a well known and popular tollgate operator on the Ohio Turnpike - Main Street, today State Route 125. Her home still stands at 94 W. Main St., across the street from where it stood when it was a tollhouse.
In May 2009, Amelia survived an initiative on dissolving the village into Pierce and Batavia Townships.
