Seven Mile is served by Edgewood Local School District. Seven Mile Elementary School is the only school located within the village limits.
230 years ago, On October 6, 1791, 2,200 troops marched to the area and encamped in the bottom on the east side of the creek. The area was then called Seven Mile after the creek name. The Indian name for Seven Mile Creek was Watamaw, meaning shining water.
In 1905, Seven Mile contained a hotel, a harness shop, a tin shop, meat store, and a mill. The village was spared during the Great Dayton Flood due to the elevated railroad grade separating it from Sevenmile Creek.
At the turn of the 20th century, the village celebrated a peculiar type of parade called the "Rag'n Fads" where all the children dressed up in the most tattered clothes they owned, according to the April 6, 1901, issue of Leslie's Weekly.
After a 2016 Ohio law legalized marijuana for medicinal uses to treat 21 ailments, including cancer, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder or chronic pain, Seven Mile was chosen as a site for one of only two dispensary locations within Butler County. The location was chosen because of its proximity to Ohio 127 and it is centrally located within a region that includes Butler, Darke and Preble counties. The dispensary opened October 24, 2019.
Seven Mile is located at (39.482356, -84.553544).
