About Newark

Newark is a city located in Licking County, Ohio, and it has a rich history dating back to the early 19th century. One notable aspect of Newark's history is its role in the transportation industry. In the early days, Newark was a hub for freight transportation due to its strategic location near major waterways and railroads. The Ohio and Erie Canal, which connected Lake Erie to the Ohio River, passed through Newark, making it an important stop for shipping goods. This canal played a crucial role in the transportation of agricultural products, coal, and other commodities, contributing to the city's economic growth.

In addition to the canal, Newark was also a major railroad center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The city was served by several rail lines, including the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the Ohio Central Railroad. These railroads facilitated the movement of goods and people, further solidifying Newark's position as a transportation hub. Today, although the canal and many rail lines are no longer in operation, Newark still benefits from its transportation infrastructure, with easy access to major highways and proximity to the Port Columbus International Airport.
