Newark

The city of Newark, Ohio is the 20th largest city in Ohio and is located in Licking County. Newark lies a half an hour east of Columbus at the junction point of the two forks of the Licking River. The city spans 21.37 square miles and is known by the nickname “Nerk.” The city is widely recognized for its historic churches and cemeteries such as the Church of the Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church, Trinity Episcopal Church, Plymouth Church as well as Newark Memorial Gardens and Mount Calvary Cemeteries. The city has a permanent niche in pop culture due to its appearance in many books like “A Million Little Pieces” by James Frey and those in the series of novels “The Tales of Alvin Maker” by Orson Scott Card.

Before the arrival of Europeans, indigenous people inhabited the area. Members of the Hopewell culture built many earthen mounds and enclosures that together make up the largest earthwork complex in the entire Ohio River Valley in what would one day be Newark. The site is now a National Historic Landmark and includes the Observatory Mound, the Observatory Circle, the Octagon. After exploration by trappers, traders and others the first settlers, both European and American, arrived in the area in 1802. This new settlement was named after Newark, New Jersey in the summer of 1825 the Ohio and Erie Canal project brought new life into the community. This project, along with the arrival of the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad in 1857, insured the towns place in trade and transport.[sws_pullquote_right]
