The Historic National Road in Ohio

Zanesville, the county seat of Muskingum County, was
named for Colonel Ebenezer Zane. In 1796 Congress
commissioned Colonel Zane to build a road from
Wheeling, Virginia (later West Virginia) to Limestone,
Kentucky (present Maysville, Kentucky). He received
three tracts of land as payment for his services. Zanesville
was established on one of his tracts, at the junction of the
Licking and Muskingum rivers. Zanesville served as
Ohio's capital from 1810 to 1812.

The National Road reached Zanesville in 1830, primarily
following the route laid out by Colonel Zane which became
known as Zane's Trace. With the combination of the
National Road, and the navigable Muskingum River,
Zanesville soon became an important commercial center.
By the 1840's, flourishing industries included iron
foundries, and cotton, flour, paper and lumber mills.
Production of art pottery was the most important industry
in Zanesville during the second half of the nineteenth
century. By the 1910's, the Zanesville region was the largest
manufacturer of pottery in the world.
