Newark: Did You Know Archibald Wilson?

Another extraneous finding came from my recent research.  Hope you agree its blog worthy.

Newark, Ohio was founded in 1802 and celebrated its 200th anniversary as a community ten years ago.

However, it wouldn't have grown to become Ohio's 20th largest city if it weren't for a little economic development along the way.

The first merchant in Licking County didn't arrive until 1805, though.  The first business was owned by Archibald Wilson.  Thanks, Arch.
