History

Zanesville is the county seat for Muskingum County. Zanesville served as the temporary capitol of Ohio from 1810 to 1812.

Founded in 1801 by Colonel Ebenezer Zane, Zanesville became a hub of activity with the use of Zane's Trace, a frontier road and Zane's ferry. [1]

The unique Y shaped bridge that spans the merging of the Licking and Muskingum Rivers gives Zanesville very distinctive look to the pilot in Ohio airways. Referring to it's navigational usefulness, Amelia Earhart called Zanesville "the most recognizable city in the country". [2]
