OTHER INFORMATION

Tuscarawas County was established in 1808. "Tuscarawas" is an Indian word meaning "open mouth". Coal and fire-clay deposits have been found in the county.

The early history of the county is involved with German-speaking Moravian missionaries who came to Christianize the Indians. New Philadelphia is the county seat and headquarters from the Muskingum Watershed Conservacy District and home of Tuscarawas County's branch of Kent State University.

Principle industries are; stone-clay-glass, metals, machinery, rubber, chemicals, food, centrifugal castings, conveyors, hand tools, ventilating fans, dairy products, and clay.

Probate Judge has birth, marriage, death & probate records; Clerk of Courts has divorce records, civil court records from 1808, immigration & naturalization records from 1907; County Recorder has land records.
