The city was originally known as "Sugar Creek," named after a tributary of the Great Miami River that flows through it.

In 1838, when land north of Middletown became available for sale by the government because it had not been settled fast enough under its original terms as part of a land grant from Congress given to veterans after the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), many people from other areas moved in and established new farms or businesses. Many more people began moving into this area after completion of the Cincinnati & Muskingum Valley Railroad (1842) which provided easy access to markets in Cincinnati. This led to rapid growth throughout Butler County which had a population of 5,000 by.
