Newark, Ohio Real Estate & Home Information

Newark is the county seat of Licking County. It is located approximately thirty-five miles east of Columbus. Samuel Elliott and Samuel Parr built the first homes -- log cabins -- in the community in 1802. By 1804, approximately twenty families lived in Newark. In 1808, residents constructed Licking County's first courthouse. It was located on the same site as Licking County's courthouse today. The original courthouse was a log structure that also served as a church. Church services occurred routinely in the courthouse in Newark's early years. In 1817, Presbyterians built the first official church in the community. By 1830, Newark had a population of roughly one thousand people. By 1840, the population had almost tripled to over 2,700 people. Most residents earned their living from agriculture in Newark's early years, but by the late 1840s, the town also boasted three newspaper offices, ten grocery stores, two gristmills, an iron foundry, a wool factory, a bookstore, two hardware stores, as well as several other business establishments. The Ohio and Erie Canal helped Newark prosper during the 1830s and 1840s. Construction of the Ohio and Erie Canal actually began just south of Newark at Licking Summit in 1825.

By 1900, Newark boasted a population of fifteen thousand people. Numerous businesses had opened since the 1840s, including several new iron foundries, various construction companies, tractor manufacturers, and numerous businesses affiliated with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Among the more important businesses in Newark during this time period were the Heisey Glass Company, world-renowned for its stem and dinnerware, and the American Bottle Company, the largest beer bottle manufacturer in the world and employer of more than 2,500 people in the first decade of the 1900s.

During the twentieth century, Newark continued to grow and prosper. In 2000, Newark's population exceeded 45,000 people. The city is home to The Ohio State University at Newark, the largest of The Ohio State University's branch campuses. Almost two thousand students are enrolled at the school, plus another three thousand people are enrolled at the Central Ohio Technical College. Numerous businesses provide economic opportunities to residents, including Owens-Corning and the Longaberger Company. Newark is the Longaberger Company's headquarters, and its offices are located in a building that resembles a large picnic basket. Construction jobs also abound, as many Columbus residents moved forty-five minutes east to Newark during the 1990s and early 2000s. These people still commute to Columbus for employment, but they prefer living in a smaller community like Newark.

Newark is probably best known for the Newark Earthworks, a series of mounds built by the Hopewell Indians in Ohio. Remnants of those earthworks still exist today, tended by the Ohio Historical Society. During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, the Licking County Fair actually took place inside the Great Circle Mound, while the Ohio National Guard utilized the Octagon Mound as a drill field.
