Coshocton, Ohio

The City of Coshocton is the county seat of Coshocton County, Ohio. Coshocton is located at the point where the Walhonding River and the Tuscarawas River join at the Muskingum River. The current population is around 11,500. Coshocton is a city with a small-town feel, though it does have some manufacturing, and is known for its production of advertising novelties. Current employers include MFM Building Products Corporation, Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation and SanCasT metal castings company.

Coshocton was originally founded in 1802, with the name "Tuscarawa" and was officially chartered with its current name in 1811. In its early years, Coshocton was a frontier town, with farming the principal occupation. The opening of the Ohio and Erie Canal in 1824 increased trade in the region, and brought coal to power manufacturing. The late 1860s brought the railroads and a gradual increase in industry. The advertising art industry in Coshocton began in 1886 with W.W. Shaw & Company and grew to nearly a dozen firms, including The American Art Works, Tuscarora Advertising Co., Standard Advertising Co., and The Meek Company. The Beach Company, which today prints lithographed calendars, was organized in 1901 as the H.D. Beach Company, making enameled trays, rulers, paint mixers and other specialty advertising pieces. The founders of many of these companies took a philanthropic interest in the city, establishing parks, hospitals, and other public works. In 1951, rubberized glove maker, the Edmont Manufacturing Company moved to Coshocton. When the company was sold in 1966, founder Edward Montgomery and his wife Frances were instrumental in restoring Roscoe Village and preserving a piece of canal history for future generations.
