Etna, OH

Founded in 1833, Etna Township was originally called the town of Carthage by Lyman Terrell. However, he renamed it Etna after the famous Sicilian volcano after learning that it was the highest point between Columbus and Jacksontown. Shortly thereafter, the National Road was constructed, enticing settlers to soon fill up its territory.

Located in the lower portion of Licking County, in what was known as the “Refugee Lands”, Etna was one of many towns along National Road that was highly susceptible to contagious diseases. This tiny village was devastated by Cholera in 1834 and small pox a decade later. Many people lost their lives during this period, causing a dramatic decrease in population. Because of these diseases, the Board of Health was established in 1893.

Etna’s post office consisted of a daily “pony express” between 1836 and 1837 that was twice the speed of the stage coach “express”. National Road was repaired and paved upon the invention of the automobile, and later upgraded to blacktop in 1917. This allowed the ease of commute and generated new businesses in the area.

Etna’s economy has greatly changed in the last two decades. What was originally a focus on agriculture transitioned to not only agriculture, but commercial and industrial as well. As a result of this positive transition, Etna’s growing community and thriving businesses has led to a lower unemployment rate and lower cost of living that the U.S. average.
