Heath is a small, close-knit Midwestern town in Ohio. The population is 93% white, which creates some issues with diversity, which can lead to discrimination among townspeople. If you are not a conservative in Heath, it is likely that you will be looked down upon. There are several churches in Heath, and its proximity to Columbus allows for great job opportunities in the big city while still giving residents the small-town experience many Americans long for.

Heath is a nice and quiet place to live it has a lot of job opportunities and most people are friendly. There are some empty buildings that they need to put stores in but over all they have your main stores in the town. There school system is nice, there are some people that take their children to Heath City Schools because they teach the children and there are locks on the doors so not just any one can walk into the school. All in all I believe that Heath is a very nice town to live in.
Heath is a small town with a lot to offer. Gather with friends and family at a number of parks, find anything you need at your local shops, see a movie at the newly updated AMC theatre at the Indian Mound Mall; or find it to be your home with quick access to Columbus, Zanesville, and many surrounding attractions.
