As President of the Chamber of Commerce and a local business owner, I welcome you to Barnesville. Our village is a wonderful destination that has a multitude of amenities. Whether it be our antique stores, craft shops, numerous restaurants, or an old fashioned hardware store, Barnesville is a welcome change from the big shopping mall. We have a world class library and a beautiful community park, local newspaper, a radio station, and a state of the art hospital. WE even have an airport! In September, Barnesville’s annual Pumpkin Festival plays host to thousands of people who come for the parade, the car show, and to see the King Pumpkin contest. Our town boasts over 200 years of history with its Victorian houses, B & O railroad depot, a museum, and churches dating as far back as 1902.

The Barnesville Area Chamber of Commerce has served and provided support to the business and professional community for 81 years. We hope our efforts have contributed to the vibrant economy and community spirit you will find in Barnesville. In closing, our biggest asset is our residents. Friendly and helpful, the people of Barnesville will make your visit memorable.

Welcome to Barnesville Mayor Dale Bunting As mayor of the Village of Barnesville, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our friendly community. We are honored you have chosen to visit and enjoy all that our village has to offer. Barnesville is located only an hour and a half from Columbus or Pittsburgh, close enough to enjoy all that these urban areas have to offer, yet far enough to maintain a hometown atmosphere. Whether you are a resident, interested in the possibility of doing business here, or a visitor, the information located on our website ( should help answer any questions you might have. Barnesville is blessed with a beautiful and scenic Memorial Park that offers a pool, hiking trails, picnic pavilions, and sports facilities. Residents also benefit from vital community resources such as the highly rated Barnesville Hospital, two skilled nursing facilities, and a senior center. We also have an outstanding public school system with two private schools, furthered by a wonderful public library. The community is served and protected by an excellent Fire Department, Emergency Squad, and Police Department, all of whose employees are not only outstanding but also dedicated. Barnesville’s accessibility to Interstate 70 makes it a great location for operating a business. Our historical downtown is active in retail and professional services while still preserving a hometown feel. The airport continues to undergo improvements to benefit local business. We are working hard on the continued development of our two Industrial Parks with help from Warren Township, the Belmont County Port Authority, and the Belmont County Commissioners. Visitors will be delighted with the many attractions and interesting sites that Barnesville has to offer. These include the Watt Car and Wheel Museum, Victorian Mansion Museum, B & O Railroad Depot, Veteran’s Plaza Overlook, and the Texas Longhorn Ranch of the Dickinson Cattle Company. What we are perhaps best known for is the annual Barnesville Pumpkin Festival. The festival is always held the last full weekend in September and attracts thousands of visitors every year. Above all, it is the generous and goodhearted people who are key in making Barnesville what it is, the Jewel of Belmont County. We hope you enjoy Barnesville. It is an excellent place to live, work, and raise a family! Sincerely,

Mayor Dale Bunting

The Village of Barnesville is constantly planning towards the improvement and repair of infrastructure to better serve the residents and business community. A 12” waterline to not only the Industrial Park on North St. Rt. 800 but also to the I-70/ Rt. 800 interchange was completed in 2013 blazing the way for development along the entire 6 mile corridor and increasing success of economic development at the interstate exit. The village is in the process of working with the Belmont County Commissioners, Belmont County Port Authority, Warren Township Trustees and Oxford Mining to develop a 200 plus acre site on North State Route 800. The new industrial park will be known as the Eastern Ohio Regional Industrial Park. The access road construction began in 2009 with the water system being installed in 2012. Electric was installed in 2014 and the sanitary sewer system was installed in 2015. The first tenant moved in during 2014. Two additional buildings were built in 2016. Barnesville is currently working with gas and oil companies in the hopes of strengthening our local economy and creating employment for our residents. Currently officials are working on the replacement of the Slope Creek Waterline to allow for a larger volume of the precious resource to be delivered to the water treatment facility. The downtown business district has maintained that hometown feel and has managed to fill the majority of retail and office space. Village Council is currently working to improve the 100 block of West Main by

purchasing dilapidated buildings to be razed to make way for additional parking for the downtown business district. Many building owners have been giving the buildings a face lift in the downtown with second floor housing also being offered. The village has much to offer with our beautiful well-used park that offers not only a great picnic spot but a regulation swimming pool, a fishing lake, the Amazing Playground structure, group camp, five ball fields, a sheltered horse shoe pit, recently upgraded hiking and exercise trails, an amphitheater for concerts, lighted tennis and basketball courts. We have our own airport, a modern library, a highly rated hospital to serve our health care needs, and a great senior center for our elder population. The village offers tourist attractions such as the Belmont County Mansion Museum, the historic B & O Depot and the Watt Center for History and the Arts. The education menu is enhanced by the choices of the Barnesville Public School System with their three well-maintained buildings, Barnesville Independent Elementary, and Olney Friends Boarding High School. Barnesville continues to expand and Village Officials will strive to offer the best in infrastructure and quality of life needs. We are a progressive community with a bright future and an attitude to succeed. Our residents are what really make Barnesville the community that it is. They are hard working, friendly, and always willing to volunteer to make Barnesville a great place to live. The citizens are our greatest assets.

Barnesville Murals Local artist Twila Fisher recently created three black and white murals which depict important scenes from Barnesville's history. The murals were commissioned by the Barnesville Village Council and funded by the Council with a matching grant from the Belmont County Board of Tourism. Mural #1: The United Dairy Company is one of two murals located on the back of the village building facing the parking lot at 126 E. Church St. The dairy was established in 1903 and located on the corner of Watt Avenue and Mulberry St. United Dairy eventually expanded to seven other cities in Ohio and West Virginia but closed in 1981. Mural #2: The former Belmont County Children's Home is the subject of a mural on the side of 146 W. Main St. The Children's Home was located in Tacoma -- east of Barnesville and was in operation for over 100 years -- from 1880 to 1981. Mural #3: Also visible from the parking lot at 126 E. Church St. is a picture of the historic Barnesville Depot, train and tunnel recreated from a photo taken in 1917. Barnesville was on the main Pittsburgh to Columbus B & O Railroad line with more than a dozen freight and passenger trains passing through town on a daily basis. Visit us at

Continuous Progress: THE BARNESVILLE-BRADFIELD AIRPORT 1946 was the year the late Gibson and John Bradfield with assistance from Clyde Wittenbrook created the BarnesvilleBradfield Airport – a 2300 foot grass strip a mile west of town. In the late 1960s, Ohio Governor James Rhodes had a goal of putting an airport in all of Ohio’s 88 counties. The available funds allowed the Barnesville-Bradford Airport to expand its runaway to 4004 feet by 65 feet and to pave the runway surface. In late 2007, the Belmont County Commissioners and the Village of Barnesville formed the Belmont County Regional Airport Authority to oversee the operation and development of Belmont County’s only publicly owned airport. Through the years, the airport has constantly upgraded and improved its facilities through the tireless work of former Airport Manager Clyde Wittenbrook and current Manager Bob Flanagan. Most recently Flanagan has overseen a significant remodeling of the building housing the office and the pilot lounge. “The first thing I did was to ensure the U.S. flag and the POW flag flew daily in front of the office,� said Flanagan. “I then knocked down one wall of the building that was all windows – windows that didn’t work – and created a new front wall. We also have a railing on the porch, a ramp, and a new sign. Inside, we replaced a lot of drywall, tiled the floor, remodeled the bathroom to make it

ADA compliant and installed a new furnace and ductwork. The rest of the airport also received attention. “The State Inspector complained it was hard to see our runway numbers,� said Flanagan. “So I painted the entire runway by hand. I used a 12 foot stencil to apply the paint for the numbers and striping. It took 140 hours of labor. We installed new runway lights three or four years ago and got new windsocks. Kimmel Painting recently repainted the hangers. They did a fantastic job.� Additionally, the airport has purchased land to the west of the runway so the road can eventually be moved a little further away from the approach path of the planes taking off and landing. “Our Board wants to move forward, and I like to always see progress,� said Flanagan. “The airport looks so nice now. We get lots of positive comments from pilots. I’d be glad to show it off to anyone who wants to stop by!�

Business Development Barnesville is uniquely positioned to be a great place for businesses to develop and grow. The area offers easy transportation options with I-70 running east-west through the heart of Belmont County and nearby I-77 and I-79 running north and south connecting the Barnesville area to major markets such as Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C – all within 500 miles. In addition, Barnesville has made wise investments in infrastructure. Three reservoirs containing 900 million gallons of usable water serve the area. Barnesville’s water treatment plant can filter 2.5 million gallons a day. The village is currently rebuilding its waste water treatment plant to create a state of the art facility. Barnesville has the enviable position of being located in two Joint Economic Development Districts (JEDD), each of which has attracted several new businesses over the last few years. Barnesville is home to two industrial parks. The older park east of town on St. Rt. 147, the JERU Industrial Park, recently received a new sewer line. The recently developed East Ohio Regional Industrial Park sits just north of town off State Rt. 800. The village extended water lines to that park and then all the way past it to the St. Rt. 800 exit from I-70. The Barnesville-Bradfield Airport features a category B-1 runway with a width of 65 feet and length of 4,004 feet. Over 2 million dollars of improvements to the airport’s infrastructure have been realized over the last 10 years. Good schools, beautiful countryside with many recreational opportunities, a full service hospital and associated outpatient services, a village with historic Victorian charm, and most importantly – welcoming people -- make Barnesville a great place to do business. A number of organizations assist area business to solve problems, move forward, and prosper!

Absolute Concrete Home Town Strong Absolute Concrete, which supplies area contractors with redi-mix concrete for all types of commercial or residential projects, opened in 2000. “One of the recent projects we undertook was the parking lot for the new Buffalo Wild Wings,” said Rich Nucci, owner of the company. “We’ve worked with most of the contractors within a 20 mile radius of Morristown. Why call us? We’re local, and we generally are able to take on a project fairly quickly – within a few days if necessary.” Absolute Concrete’s reliability and professionalism is paying off as its business has grown since its founding. “We started with two concrete mixers and expect to run eight trucks in 2017,” said Nucci.

Johnson Family Pottery Luke & Susan Johnson In 2010, Luke Johnson, Barnesville High School art teacher, opened a pottery studio in his home. The whole Johnson family has chipped in to help. Johnson hand throws the pottery while his wife Susan and kids Connor and Lydia help with making ornaments, pricing, packaging, delivery and paperwork. The emphasis in the products is also about family. “Family is a big thing to us, and we promote that,” said Johnson. “Most of what we sell is personalized. We make commemorative pottery items for family reunions, weddings and the like.” The product line includes “family bowls,” which are decorated with figures representing family members and the family name; crocks; mugs; jugs; lamps; pie plates and more. In addition to the personalized family items, many people have purchased pieces with the names and logos of local sports teams or the names of villages and towns.

“We started selling from our home and going to a few festivals,” said Johnson. “The business grew and grew, and we needed a bigger place for it.” So Johnson Family Pottery has recently relocated to the renovated former Moose Lodge at 118 ½ E. Main St. in Barnesville. The shop does not have set hours yet but welcomes visitors during the Pumpkin Show and Christmas Season. “Eventually we plan to be open on a more regular basis,” Johnson said. In the meantime, orders can be placed by calling 740-425-3210, and the pottery’s Facebook page provides photos of the product line. Johnson Family Pottery provides the chance to give a really special gift to someone you think special!

Somerton United Methodist Church The sturdy and stately, brick, gothic-style church, which had served Methodists in the Somerton area since 1873, was destroyed in the derecho that swept across the state of Ohio on June 29, 2012. On July 17, 2016 – almost exactly 4 years later – the congregation dedicated a new stately and study brick building at the same location. “The community came together to help in so many ways,” said church spokesperson Jody Wilcox. “The new building is entirely paid for. We received numerous donations – both of money and work. Other churches helped us. We had many fundraisers. Lots of people put forth lots of effort. Our contractor T. J. Jeffers did a wonderful job and worked with us so the congregation could provide some labor and donations of labor could be put to use. The community was just wonderful.” Parts of the old church have been preserved and are or will be included in the new building to provide continuity for the church’s long history. The cross and pulpit from the former church grace the

new beautiful sanctuary. Some old windows will be installed and plans are to also use some old benches. But new improvements are also delighting church members. “We especially are enjoying our new fellowship hall and warming station,” said Wilcox. “It is so nice to have that space, and we already have had many events. We’ve had two weddings, birthdays, baby showers, a fall harvest party, an Election Day dinner, an anniversary, and a revival. We are also pleased that our new church is accessible for those with physical challenges.” Wilcox reports attendance at the church is growing, and they would warmly welcome visitors and additional new members. Pastor Richard Wilson serves the church. Worship begins at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. Sunday school starts at 9:30. Somerton United Methodist Church is located at 55400 Washington St., Barnesville. Phone: 740-526-1354. You can learn more by visiting the church’s Facebook page.

Zane State College’s OGET Program

Places Grads in Jobs

Thanks to a recent grant from the Dominion Foundation, Zane State College’s Oil and Gas Technology program (OGET) continues to grow. The program, offered in its entirety at the College’s Cambridge, Ohio campus, is the only two-year oil and gas program accredited by the Ohio Board of Regents. Zane State College is one of seven colleges in Ohio sharing a Higher Education Grant from Dominion. The College’s funding will go toward the oil and gas engineering technology program’s oil and gas rock properties initiative. The initiative provides students with hands-on experience in using specialized equipment to test, examine and evaluate core samples to identify potential gas and oil-bearing rock formations. 24

Barnesville Community Guide

Part of that hands-on work, explains OGET Instructor Paul Paslay, will take place in a new building. The new construction will house the program’s compressor and other lab equipment behind the Willett Pratt Training Center on ZSC’s Cambridge campus. Students in OGET explore their field comprehensively. The curriculum, which includes shale exploration, provides a solid foundation and elastic borders: it is built to expand with industry evolution. Students begin by learning the technology of exploring for gas and oil. They learn about how the fuels are developed, and then they focus on their distribution. Those who want to drill deeper into a specific emphasis can augment their degrees with short term certificates. Recently, students attended the Ohio Oil and Gas Association Technical Expo. Morgan Kuhn, who is a December 2016 graduate with an associate’s degree in Oil and Gas Engineering Technology, notes the curriculum has broadened her horizons. “The program has a lot of hands on learning and expands your knowledge on several subjects,” she says. “I was lucky enough to go to Texas for the 2016 Society of Petroleum Engineers Hydraulic Fracturing Conference because of the OGET program.” After graduation, Kuhn will pursue a job as a production operator for a local oil and gas company; she will also work toward additional certifications, particularly wild well control. For more information on the oil and gas program, please contact Instructor Paul Paslay at

Barnesville Hospital's Richard L. Doan Emergency Department Barnesville Hospital’s new Emergency Department has been open for one year, and patients and staff have both overwhelmingly expressed their approval of the new facility. The new Emergency Department offers private rooms, a comfortable waiting area, improved access to care and bedside registration—all services our communities members wanted and deserved. “We are thrilled the new Emergency Department became a reality and it is because of the support of our Hospital Family, the Village of Barnesville and the generosity of area residents,” said David Phillips, CEO, Barnesville Hospital. “It has been extremely gratifying to hear the positive comments from patients who have used the new Emergency Department. They are pleased with the space, the privacy and the care.” Emergency Department visits have increased over the past year, which indi-

cates the new Emergency Department is a service area residents wanted and are utilizing. “The Emergency Room has many features residents may not know about, including a grief consultation room where physicians or staff can meet with family members in a confidential setting. There are also two Trauma Rooms which allow us to be prepared to handle the severest cases which come through our doors”, said Ryan Gallagher, RN, Emergency Department Manager. “We also have a “safe” room which provides a room to safely and compassionately care for those individual who have experienced an overdose or a mental health crisis.” The new Richard L. Doan Emergency Department is providing quality and compassionate emergency care 24 hours a day for our communities.

The Captina Creek Birding Trail On April 30, 2016, the Belmont Soil and Water Conservation District kicked off the opening of the newest recreational activity in Belmont County – the Captina Creek Birding Trail. The Birding Trail is a driving route that links five stops in areas known to be habitat for some of the many bird species that live in the Captina Creek Watershed. While not a hiking trail, two of the stops have areas for short walks. A grant from the Belmont County Tourism Council funded signs at the stops along the trail that provide information about each area and the bird species that might be in residence. A downloadable brochure with directions for the drive is available at Captina Creek, known as “Ohio’s Hidden Treasure,” is one of the state’s cleanest streams and home to 56 species of fish as well as rare or endangered species such as the Eastern Hellbender salamander. Stop number three on the Birding Trail is at Raven Rocks, a 1000 acre land trust, which is a refuge for many birds including the Northern Parula, a tropical species spotted there while on its migratory route. Hooded Merganser and Belted Kingfishers depend on the creek along with Pileated Woodpeckers and Scarlet Tanagers. In one two-hour period, observers identified over 70 species of birds at Raven Rocks. The fifth stop on the trail is at Dysart Woods where visitors can hike through an area of virgin timber with trees several hundred years old. Birding is an activity that can be enjoyed any season. The Barnesville area provides prime bird-watching opportunities within a watershed that is recognized as an exceptional natural resource and which area residents are working hard to preserve!

The B & O Depot The last remaining train station on the Baltimore and Ohio’s Pittsburgh to Columbus main line in Belmont County is located at 300 E. Church St. in Barnesville. The Spanish Mission-influenced brick building, erected in 1916, served as the “front door” for Barnesville by bringing visitors to the area, taking passengers from Belmont County to major U.S. cities, shipping local produce to markets (especially strawberries!), delivering goods to merchants, and sending troops off to three different wars. The last passenger train passed through Barnesville in 1961. B & O maintained the Depot as a workshop until 1986. The Depot was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 8, 1985. In 1990, local groups were able to purchase the rapidly deteriorating building with money raised from direct solicitations and fundraisers held by many community groups – from the Boy Scouts, to the Knights of Columbus to the third graders (Class of 2000), who did errands to raise money. The Barnesville Depot Committee maintains the historic building as well as the Roby Cigar Museum, the Caboose, and the surrounding grounds. According to Aaron Wildman,

President of the Committee, the group is currently working to restore the roof and also refurbish the old caboose. The nearby railroad tunnel has been evaluated and declared sound. The Rails to Trails Committee has set a goal of creating a biking and walking path along the old railway route that will include the tunnel and continue to the east end of Barnesville. These groups of dedicated individuals are committed to the preservation of this exceptional piece of Barnesville’s history!

The Watt Center for History & the Arts Contributed by Mary Sidwell

When a long-time industry leaves a small town, local reactions may reflect the character of the residents. Barnesville is known for grass-roots, home grown efforts to take on big projects. By 1997 The Watt Car & Wheel Co., founded in 1863 and once the world’s largest manufacturer of mine cars, had been sold and operations moved. Yes, the town mourned the loss, but a few citizens who knew what a gem the Watt office building to be were thinking hard about its future. For local history volunteers the stories of working folks in the area seemed important. This notion inspired the founding of a museum featuring that local history, specifically industrial, retail, and agricultural. Barnesville’s families have provided labor and ingenuity both in the past and present. Because there is so much space in the building a focus on art was included in the mission of The Watt Center. Built in stages after 1888, the two story brick office building has pressed tin ceilings, wood paneling, six vaults, and a maze of rooms that were former offices. Over the years great care was taken to preserve the original features that can still be admired.

New Restaurants on The National Road For all you discerning diners, Route 40 has some new eateries that you’ll want to try. Both of these new restaurants are locally owned and include distinctive items on their menus. 40 Sports Grill, an Ohio State themed restaurant, opened in February 2016 with Zach Orban, formerly the chef at Wheeling’s Avenue Eats, in command of the kitchen. Orban has put together a menu full of interesting appetizers for noshing on while watching your favorite sports event – everything from wings, to cracklins, to nachos, to mac and cheese bites or potato skins. 40 Sports Grill specializes in smoked meats: chicken, ribs or brisket – slow cooked to perfection out back. The burger menu is unlike any others with elk and bison in addition to beef and even a bacon and egg cheeseburger. On weekends the special is frog legs! And of course, Buckeyes take the lead on the desert menu. 40 Sports Grill strives to be family friendly with a special kid’s menu. There are five beers on tap including craft beer as well as liquor and wine. Carryout is available for all food and drinks. But you won’t want to leave because there are 16 HD TVs showing your favorite games as well as a dart board and juke box. 40 Sports Grill is located at 43920 National Road in Belmont, OH 43718. Their phone is 740-695-5582.
