Mt. Orab is located in southwestern Ohio in Brown County
about 30 miles east southeast of Cincinnati
and 10 miles north of Georgetown
, the county seat, on the shores of Grant Lake. The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 2,335, an increase of 406 since 1990.
One of the interesting geological features of the area is the existence of a trilobite farm. Trilobites are hard-shelled, segmented creatures that existed over 300 million years ago in the Earth's ancient seas. They went extinct before dinosaurs even existed, and are one of the key signature creatures of the Paleozoic Era.
