The Village of Payne
The Village of Payne

Welcome to the Village of Payne

Established in 1872, Payne has maintained its hometown charm and friendly family atmposphere for over 150 years. 

Come and enjoy our Parks, Library, The Rock, Youth Center and Businesses.

          Economic Devolopment is important to the Village and we are excited about the growth opportunities we could provide to new businesses and industries. Our dedicated local government officials look forward to future growth, while still maintaining our small town charm. We are located at the intersection of SR 49, SR 500 and SR 613. We are 7 miles from SR 24, 9 miles from SR 30 and Norfolk Southern Railroad crosses thru the Village. Come explore your business opportunities with our local government.  Please feel free to contact myself or any local government officials to discuss growth opportunities for your business as well as for the village.

           Village Council Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month at the Village Hall.  Anyone is welcome to attend.  Please feel free to contact myself for any reason.  Have a great day!
