Home Inspector with Home Inspection and Investor Services, Clayton

Incorporated in 1848 Vandalia is north of Dayton, Ohio and northeast of Clayton.  It is a thriving community that encompasses the Dayton International Airport.  Founded by Benjamin Wilhelm, who also became Vandalia's first mayor, at the crossroads of US Rte. 40 (the Old National Trail) and US Rte. 25 (unofficially called The Dixie Highway) making Vandalia a real Crossroads of America.  This hasn't changed since the inception of the interstate system because now it is the just north of the junction of I-70 and I-75. 

Vandalia is the home of the Vandalia-Butler School system (ranked Excellent in the State of Ohio for the last 6 years) and events such as the Dayton Air Show. 

Just east of Vandalia is the Tayorsville Dam another one of the five dams built on the five rivers that flow through Montgomery County and were the contributing rivers for the 1913 flood. The photo to the left shows US Rte 40 passing over the dam.
