Visit Zanesville, Ohio

In the 1790s, a settlement was established at the confluence of the Licking and Muskingum Rivers as Colonel Ebenezer Zane and his son-in-law John McIntire blazed Zane’s Trace, the original pioneer trail into the old Northwest Territory. Zane, a Revolutionary War veteran, was commissioned by the U.S. Congress to blaze a pathway into the rolling hills and the dense forests of the Ohio Valley, and to establish ferry crossings at three major rivers including the Muskingum.

McIntire and Zane’s brother Jonathan took responsibility for operating the ferry at the Muskingum River and they were the county’s first settlers. A town laid out by McIntire called Westbourne quickly grew out of the settlement and in 1801 it was renamed Zanesville in honor of Colonel Zane.

Temporary State Capital – Ohio

Zanesville served as the temporary capitol of Ohio from 1810 to 1812. In 1814, the city’s well-known Y-shaped bridge was initially constructed to cross the junction of the two rivers in the center of Zanesville – the Licking and Muskingum. Today, the fifth Y-Bridge still stands at the heart of the community.
