Set Your Watches: Here Comes The Train

1863--In our interstate era, we often forget how crucial the railroad was to the development of our country. At one time, if you traveled from New York to St. Louis, you went through Coshocton. During the early 20th century, Coshocton had 75+ trains passing through town on a daily basis. In light of those numbers, it's easy to understand why hoboes loved Coshocton.
