Inscription. Jacob Light (1756 – 1831) platted the Village of New Richmond in 1814 on 85 acres he had bought in 1804. His village streets ran at right angles to the Ohio River.

Thomas Ashburn (1769 – 1826) bought 875 acres from William Lytle next to New Richmond. He designed the elaborate town of Susanna, named after his wife, with streets radiating from the river and a public promenade on the river. In 1828 the two towns were incorporated by the Ohio General Assembly as New Richmond. Union Street is the meeting of the two original towns.
