Also see . . .  History of Zoar. In a few short years these hard-working settlers had tamed the wilderness into productive agricultural farmland, built homes and established businesses—a flour mill, saw mill, wool factory, iron furnaces, tannery, foundry, garden, hotel, and livery. For themselves, they built a sewing house, weaving house, bakery, cobbler shop, blacksmith shop, cabinet shop, dairy, barns, and store. The Society prospered, selling their goods up and down the Ohio Canal. (Submitted on January 4, 2021, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
