Zanesville Montgomery County

In Zanesville Township one Robert Palmer in 1824 opened a public house; this location was on the main road from Springfield and Vandalia. Stores were opened, homes built, a public square laid off, mills built, post office opened. The town was called both Zanesville and Leesburg. When the railroad missed the town, its importance grew less. Today, only a field is found where so many lived.
