Cold weather and blowing winds did not stop Muskingum County residents from celebrating Ohio's history of transportation. Sunday afternoon the Village of New Concord unveiled a bicentennial marker commemorating Zane's Trace. It holds the distinction of being Ohio's first roadway. Thousands of travelers used Zane's Trace road, which beings in Wheeling, West Virginia and ends at the Ohio River and Marysville, Kentucky. These early travelers helped establish the cities of St. Clairsville, Cambridge, Zanesville, Lancaster, Somerset and Chillicothe. The Longaberger Company, the Ohio Bicentennial Commission, and the Daughters of the American Revolution helped purchase the marker for the Village.
