In 1802, General William C. Schenck, G.W. Burnet, and John Cummins decided that the confluence of the Licking River forks was a good location for a settlement for hardy pioneers coming over the Alleghenies. They surveyed the land and platted the town, calling it Newark for their native community in New Jersey. By 1880, Newark s population numbered more than 10,000. Through historic photographs, the book tours around the Square to surrounding churches, schools, homes, people, and businesses and travels on the Newark Consolidated Electric Railway from Newark to Idlewilde Park."
