The Historic National Road in Ohio

In 1827, construction of the National Road began through Muskingum County, and the Scotch-Irish settlement that became New Concord was laid out on March 24, 1828 by Judge David Findley. Judge Findley, born in Belfast, Ireland in 1762, and his six sons carved out farms from the area that is now Interstate 70 to John Glenn High School. They built log cabins, a carding mill (where wool was prepared for spinning), a tobacco warehouse and a distillery. Prior to the building of the National Road, the greatest problem of these pioneers was getting crops to the market. The Road led the growth of the "pike town" and within two years the town population was 32; by 1833 it was 75 and in 1837 it was 200. The village was officially incorporated in 1838.
