Okeana is an unincorporated community of central Morgan Township, Butler County, Ohio, on Dry Fork Creek, a tributary of the Great Miami River, on State Route 126 about three miles northwest of Shandon in sections 21 and 26 of R1ET3N of the Congress Lands. It is a mile north of Alert, a mile east of Macedonia, and ten miles southwest of Hamilton. It is in the Ross Local School District.
A post office was established there in 1828 as Tariff, but was changed to Okeana on May 27, 1858, after the daughter of the Indian chief Kiatta, for whom a stream in Morgan Township is named. The town was laid out by the Rev. Benjamin Lloyd.
