Rising City is a town in Butler County that is able to boast many unique traits and historical tidbits: It has the only Post Office in the entire United States with the name “Rising City.” W.F. Weber, longtime Rising City barber, was listed in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not for having shaved one of his patrons every morning for 45 years. Rising City also puts on one of the more popular 4th of July Fireworks Displays in the area.
While it is no longer the bustling community of over 700 residents and 30 businesses that it used to be in the late 1800s/early 1900s, Rising City still enjoys a number of successful businesses and popular community events. Families can spend their afternoons at Garhan Park, where the Rising City Park Committee recently completed the purchase and construction of brand new playground equipment.
