Coshocton Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 32 photos
A friend of Jill's suggested that we visit Coshocton, Ohio to see the Historic Roscoe Village, and we were certainly glad that we did!
Roscoe Village restoration came about because of Edward and Frances Montgomery. Edward grew up in nearby Coshocton and wanted to see the once beautiful Roscoe Village renovated. This couple founded the Edmont Company in Coshocton and developed a revolutionary method for treating cotton flannel industrial gloves with latex. They made lots of money, and when, he retired, he and his wife, Frances Montgomery, decided to use that money to start the process of restoring the decaying Roscoe Village back to its earlier 1800s splendor.
How fortunate for all of us that they had the forsight, money, and desire to make their dream come true. That dream lives on through the not-for profit corporation they created. Today's Roscoe Village is entertaining and educational as well as a living museum dedicated to keeping the spirit of that once-thriving canal town alive.
