Canal Lewisville — Tuscarawas Township

Latitude 40.299N - Longitude -81.836W.

Keene and Tuscarawas township

Canal Lewisville lies partly in Keene and partly in Tuscarawas township. The dividing line passes diagonally through the plat, leaving the larger portion of it, and almost entirely the occupied part, in Tuscarawas township. It lies in the beautiful Tuscarawas valley, a short distance north of the river. The Ohio canal passes through the village, and gave rise to its location and growth. It was laid out by the county surveyor, James Ravenscraft, July 2, 1932, Solomon Vail and Thomas B. Lewis being the proprietors. Their expectations of its rapid development were genuine, if the size of the plat be any indication. It contained 220 lots, besides a number of outlets.

Zeno — Bedford Township

Zeno was the quaint appellation which Abraham Cheney bestowed upon a little town of his own creation, in 1833, situated on lot 11 of the military section. Its life was ephemeral. Few houses were built, these few soon removed, and the village plot vacated not many years afters formation, the reason whereof is veiled in oblivion as deep as the town itself.

Tunnel Hill — Bedford Township

Tunnel Hill Postoffice is situated about two miles east of West Bedford, on the Coshocton road. It was formed in 1873 by the appointment of T.W. Thompson postmaster. He still holds the position. The postoffice was secured through the influence of the railroad officials then engaged upon the construction of the tunnel a mile or so to the northeast. T.W. Thompson owns a store here, Leonard Haines a harness shop, and Samuel Dickerson a blacksmith shop.
