Founding of New Richmond
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.
