Charm is a quaint little town surrounded by rolling farm hills, best known for the Keim Lumber Company, which was founded in
1911 by Mose J. Keim, who had set up a saw.  Troyer’s Homestead restaurant is located in the center of town, and known for
good home cooking.  Below is a quick video tour of Charm, Ohio.
Charm, a very small Amish town, is located on State Route 557 in rural Holmes County.  Annually, in early to
mid-October, the quaint community of Charm hosts Charm Days, which is a two day event hosting a bake
sale, flea market, yard sales, old-fashioned chili and pies from the local school benefit and fiddling program.  
Merchants also offer discounts, specials and a grand prize drawing that brings the little town of Charm
together.
