The Walhonding Valley has a colorful past rich in heritage and culture. Prehistoric Indians once mined hills of Jefferson Township for flint. Its prairies were the first to be settled in what is now Coshocton County, and it waterways have been central to life itself, sustaining early Indian villages and later on farms and centers of commerce. The legends of Johnny Appleseed and "White Woman's Rock" echo yet today, and legacies of hard work, family values and community spirit are evidenced all along the old canals and railways that brought prosperity to the countrysides.
The old Warsaw Hotel is being restored to its former glory and houses the Walhonding Valley Historical Society Museum. The museum has numerous Native artifacts found in the surrounding area that offer glimpse into the region's prehistoric past.
