Coshocton has a population just under 40,000. An old-fashioned Towne Centre in the downtown area boasts buildings and landscaping as it appeared in the old days when great detail created beautiful churches, houses and town buildings.
Roscoe Village, a restored 19th century town within the town, is Coshocton's claim to fame with streets of shops, restaurants and what are known as living history buildings, which serve to reproduce and show what life was like over 100 years ago. Ride the Monticello III, a replica of a canal boat, along the mile and a half stretch of canal and soak in the scenery of a lifetime past.
There are several wineries just a short drive from Coshocton County, including the newest addition, Shawnee Springs where visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic to go along with their purchases.
Coshocton is approximately 75 miles east of Columbus and about 85 miles west of West Virginia's northern panhandle. Accessible via Rte. 36 from the west, the nearest interstate is I-77 about 20 miles east of the town.
