DescriptionNew Philadelphia was founded in the early 1800s by Moravian missionaries and Swiss-German immigrants who were undaunted by the hard times faced by their brethren in previous unsuccessful settlements. Surviving Native American raids and the Revolutionary War, the village soon saw economic growth and prosperity.
A light industrial center, New Philadelphia also is a popular vacation spot. Recreational opportunities are abundant on the 16,000 acres of lakes in the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District.
