There’s something magical about Autumn in Coshocton. The rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountain region serve as the backdrop for a visit to Historic Roscoe Village. The colors of changing leaves in the surrounding hillsides make for a scenic journey to “America’s Canal Town.”
Historic Roscoe Village is a charming place to visit while leaves swirl on the brick sidewalks. Taking a stroll through the historic neighborhood, stopping for a bite to eat, and browsing the shops makes for a great day out. Cooler temperatures usher in favorite area traditions that include the Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival, Fall Farm Markets, Corn Maze. and the Fall Farm and Foliage tour.
Beginning in October, Historic Roscoe Village will offer a brand new “Spirit of Roscoe” tour. “The self-guided tour allows guests to experience the village at their own pace,” said Marketing Director Angel Jones. “Our new interactive content will include family-friendly spooky stories featuring Roscoe’s past residents. Some of our Living History exhibits will also feature costumed interpreters, giving guests a chance to ask questions and learn more about our 1830’s Ohio and Erie Canal Town.”
Plan to add a visit to the nationally recognized Johnson Humrickhouse Museum, too. Its collection of Prehistoric artifacts, East Asian Art and Ohio History and limited engagement gallery exhibits make this eclectic museum a must-see while visiting Coshocton.
The 51st Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival takes place October 21-23. The smell of fresh apple butter fills the air during this event that recaptures the flavor of an old-time harvest celebration. Enjoy homemade Apple Butter, live music, free crafts for kids, more than 100 craft & food vendors, History Tour of the Canal Town, Spirit Tours, and more.
The Shops of Roscoe Village are not to be missed during a visit. All are locally owned and housed within historic buildings. There are four restaurants in the village along with shops that offer handmade leather goods, locally made food and wines, home decor, personal care items, women and children’s clothing, fine jewelry, old-fashioned candy and sodas, American-made flags and much more.
