The area where the city of Kettering now lies was settled from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s, largely as farmland The population in the area started to grow, prompting the creation of now defunct Van Buren Township in 1841 In November 1952, township voters approved incorporating as the Village of Kettering In 1953, the western portion of the village voted to secede, forming a new township, which is now the City of Moraine7 By 1955, the village's population had grown to 38,118, which qualified it to claim city status, with the official proclamation by the state on June 248 The city is named for inventor Charles F Kettering, who resided here in his home, Ridgeleigh Terrace, from 1914 until his death in 1958 Charles Kettering is known for his numerous inventions and contributions to the Dayton area9

From the 1950s to the 1970s, Kettering's population continued to grow, adding more than 30,000 residents This growth was due in part to the many people who started migrating out of nearby Dayton after World War II Since the 1980s, Kettering has seen a slow decline in population because of an aging population and loss of manufacturing jobs


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1872 square miles 4848 km2, of which 1868 square miles 4838 km2 is land and 004 square miles 010 km2 is water1
