Welcome to Barnesville Mayor Dale Bunting As mayor of the Village of Barnesville, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our hometown 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 and two hours from Pittsburgh, close enough for us 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

Message from Village Administrator

Roger Deal

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 Co. Commissioners, Belmont Co. Port Authority, Warren Township Trustees and Oxford Mining to develop a 200 plus acre site on North St. Rt. 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. Barnesville is currently working with gas and oil companies in the hopes of strengthening our local economy and creating employment for our residents. The Village not only completed the sanitary sewer system to the Industrial Park which included the replacement of a sewage lift station this year but also completed a waterline replacement project followed closely by a large paving project. The downtown business district has maintained that hometown feel and has managed to fill the majority of retail and office space.

A beacon of light and hope making disciples for Jesus Christ, offering a helping hand and walking alongside those we serve. • SOWER Work Mission Home Repairs - Celebrating 20th Anniversary! Repairs include handicap ramps, painting, porches, siding, & more. • Bridges Out of Poverty - Community awareness & workshops on poverty • Project Manna Choice Food Pantry -Serving Union Local School District with our newly renovated choice pantry

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, and 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 Co. Mansion Museum, the 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. The business community is one of the finest with an array of choices and small town services. 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.

civic endeavors in Barnesville including new school buildings, the library, park, airport, hospital and the Pumpkin Festival. A special sesquicentennial edition of the paper is being planned for release in May to celebrate this long partnership between the Barnesville community and the newspaper that provides the community with the civic information it needs. Today, the Enterprise is under the direction of Cathryn Stanley, editor; Beth Stephen, advertising representative, and Heather Roberts, office manager and reporter. The paper is located at 166 East Main Street, its office for over 80 years.

George McClelland published the first issue of the Barnesville Enterprise on May 28, 1866 – a weekly newspaper with the mission of reporting all the goings-on in Barnesville and nearby communities. E.P. Lee and his wife took over this successful publication when McClelland retired 20 years later due to failing health. In these early days, The Enterprise was located at 141 E. Main where the Bethel-Peters Insurance Agency is now. In 1895, hard times hit the paper when a fire started and burned most of the block west of the newspaper’s offices. In the Great Fire of 1895, the businesses affected were lost as well as the Enterprise’s files. The Lees maintained files of the newspapers from the date of the fire until 1910, and then for some reason stopped. Editions of the newspaper were again saved starting in 1923. Historical information from 1910 to 1923 was preserved for the community because files of the Barnesville Whetstone, another local publication, were obtained and microfilmed. There are copies of these microfilms at the Enterprise offices as well as the Barnesville Hutton Memorial Library. In 1922, Martins Ferry native Ray Palmer, a reporter with the Columbus Dispatch, saw a notice on that paper’s bulletin board about an opportunity to buy a weekly paper in Barnesville. L.J. Taber, who was head of the state Department of Agriculture at the time, supported and encouraged Palmer, and Palmer purchased the paper from E.P. Lee’s daughter April 13, 1922. Palmer was editor and publisher for more than 50 successful years assisted by his wife Margaret. Ray and Margaret were my parents, and when they retired, my husband Bill and I took over operations. Eventually, changes in printing technology led the Enterprise to become part of a larger organization, and in November 1983, The Enterprise was sold to Dix Communications, the parent company of The Daily Jeffersonian, the newspaper in Cambridge. Over the years, The Barnesville Enterprise won many awards for news coverage, features, community service and general excellence. The paper has supported many

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.

The First Presbyterian Church of Barnesville The First Presbyterian Church of Barnesville, located on the corner of W. Church St. and N. Chestnut St., has both a long history and some new bright beginnings. The church was first established at its current location in 1859. By 1900, the congregation had outgrown the original frame building, which was sold to the Roman Catholic parish and moved to South Main St. Columbus architect Frank Packard designed the current, unique church building in an arts-and-crafts Gothic style with an Oriental pagoda look. The church was constructed from recycled brick covered with red sandstone from Mansfield, Ohio. The domed worship area provides excellent acoustics for the choir and the Felgemacher pipe organ, the only true pipe organ in Barnesville. The original bell still calls the faithful to church services today. Beautiful stained and painted glass windows grace every room of the church, which provides tours during the Pumpkin Festival and by special arrangement. In 2015, First Presbyterian, a member of the Presbyterian Church USA and part of the Ohio Valley Presbytery, welcomed

their new pastor, Rev. Samuel (Sam) Monte. Monte and his wife Gail report a passion for mission work as he has traveled to Africa for the church and she to Haiti. Both have spent time in Turkey. Monte reports he is planning more mission and outreach activities in Barnesville. This past Christmas season saw the church hosting a wrapping party for the entire Barnesville community and spearheading a hat and glove drive. Monte plans to focus his efforts on the children’s ministry stating, “I am excited as a father and more excited as a pastor. It’s good to have a foundation for kids.” One innovative outreach Monte, a Star Wars fan, plans is a Bible Study for teens based on the popular movie series. First Presbyterian’s doors are wide open, and all are welcome. The Sunday schedule is as follows: adult Sunday school at 9:15 am, coffee hour at 10, organ prelude at 10:15, and worship at 10:30. Children’s church is held after the children’s message, and nursery is available. There are Bible study groups on Tuesday at 7 pm and Wednesday at 11 am.

It’s not done with sleek racing cars. It’s not in France. But Barnesville’s Grand Prix has all the elements that make Grand Prix auto racing famous. Barnesville’s Grand Prix is a series of four 5K walk/runs held with the goal of promoting health, friendship, community and fund raising. Carl Kondrach directs the Grand Prix races and has been voted Race Director of the Year for the third time in five years by the Ohio Valley Runners/Walkers Club. The four races that comprise the Grand Prix are the Rails to Trails 5K held to raise funds to promote the re-purposing of abandoned railroad rights of way into recreational pathways in and around Barnesville; then there is the Pumpkin Festival 5K; the Santa’s Spirit 5K, which buys toys for kids whose parents need the help, and the Barnesville Park/Rotary Race, held to raise funds for improvements and trail maintenance in the Barnesville Park. Last year 650 participated in the Pumpkin Festival 5K, which has been consistently voted the best race in the region by the Ohio Valley Runners/Walkers Club. “My main focus is putting on a good race, and the fund raising follows,” said Kondrach. “I keep the focus

on the runners and walkers and do the things I like when I go to a race. I want people to be excited about running and walking.” To that end, all the runners who pre-register get race packets stuffed with goodies and t-shirts. Merchants donate door prizes, and runners never leave hungry. After the race there may be pizza, subs, pepperoni rolls, home-made cookies, and all the beverages you can drink. “My wife makes a great pasta salad that everyone raves about,” Kondrach said. The races provide events for everyone. There may be a K9 competitive walk division. The kids love the 200 yard Tunnel Fun Run through the historic train tunnel with Spike and Buck, the Wheeling Nailers’ Mascots, handing out prizes at the finish. Music from DJ Mister Twister helps runners kick in near the finish line. But perhaps the best thing is the trophies. Kondrach handmakes the totally unique trophies in his wood shop or from hand-crafted ceramic-fired pottery. The attention to detail pays off. “350 people came to a recent race even though it was pouring rain,” said Kondrach. “The four races bring 1700 visitors to Barnesville each year. They really aren’t races – they’re a great big family-reunion.”

Barnesville Students Benefit from...

Project Lead the Way

We are now part of a global economy, and the Barnesville Schools recently instituted a program to prepare students for the jobs that economy demands in order for the U.S. to successfully compete: jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Project Lead the Way is a non-profit organization that has developed curricula for STEM courses for secondary students. Barnesville is one of two Belmont County school systems currently offering the program at the high school level and the only Belmont County school also involving middle school students. Jon Jordan, Barnesville Middle School teacher, reported that a select group of 25 students took Project Lead the Way courses last year – the first year of the program. Jordan and fellow teacher Steve Fisher offered three engineering courses: Design and Modeling (involves learning 3D Auto Cad); Automation and Robotics; and The Magic of Electrons (a digital electronics course). The students learn C-based computer programming and spend 50% of class time learning and practicing the programming and 50% building models. Grant money allowed the school system to purchase a 3-D printer and other equipment, and the students design and manufacture parts on the printer. Some of the course projects involve building models of a toll booth with an arm that raises and lowers, a working traffic light, and a three-story elevator that stops at each of the floors. Middle school students who want to do more can participate on the competitive robotics team Jordan advises. “Most students were enthusiastic about the courses,” reports Jordan. “They get a chance to apply what they learn in other courses, like math, to practical experiences. The courses aren’t easy. We use professional level software, so the students are challenged.” Building on success, this school year every student in the 6th through 8th grade at the middle school takes at least nine weeks of the STEM course material as part of their special rotation, and some take the longer courses as electives. Also this year, Barnesville High School students have the opportunity to begin enrolling in four STEM courses taught by Matt Hissom: Introduction to

Engineering Design, Principals of Engineering, Digital Electronics, and a capstone course in which the student spends a year on a special project. If students take all four courses and maintain at least a B average, they receive nine semester hours of engineering credit from Ohio University. “We consider these courses discovery level courses at the middle school,” Jordan said. “They give students an alternative they might not have thought of before. After taking them, students will know if they would want to pursue these fields of study further or not.” For those students who enjoy the course work and decide to study in STEM fields, they will find themselves well-prepared for the jobs of the future.

Barnesville Health & Healing Barnesville Hospital Opens New Emergency Department Barnesville Hospital achieved another historical milestone in 2015 with the opening of the Richard L. Doan Emergency Department. The former Emergency Department had grown over-crowded and the design and access made it inefficient and inconvenient for patients and staff alike. The new Emergency Department addresses many of the shortcomings by offering: Private treatment rooms, providing adequate room for staff, equipment, and family members Increased number of treatment rooms, from 3 to 8, reducing wait time and enhancing comfort Enhanced triage capabilities to expedite life-saving care Addition of a secure room for mental health treatment and potentially volatile patients increasing safety for staff, visitors, and patients State of the art patient monitoring and technology A private waiting room for family and patients The area’s flow pattern will be redesigned, with improved and more private access to surgery and inpatient units An alternative to the emergency room for non-emergent conditions “The expanded Emergency Department will greatly enhance our ability to meet the needs of our patients and their families,” Cynthia Touvelle, BSN, Chief Nursing Officer said. “The design will add private treatment rooms for confidentiality and additional support space for staff, equipment and technology. A private waiting area will provide comfort to family members. A redesigned patient flow will allow for an Urgent Care track which is a lower cost alternative to patients unable to access their primary care physician for minor illnesses. State-of-the-art monitoring and medical technology, along with highly qualified staff, will allow us to provide the emergency care the community deserves.” Rapid access to high-quality emergency health and medical services is a fundamental need for any community. In a medical emergency, access to care in a timely manner is critical; during emergencies, we feel more vulnerable and most in need of comfort of life-saving care. No one knows when the next emergency might be our self or that of a loved one.

Sonotone Hearing Aid Center West On September 15, 2015, there was a ribbon cutting in front of the new branch of Sonotone Hearing Aid Center. Sonotone has been a family owned business in Bridgeport for over 50 years and has been operated by Jacki Keenan BS-HSS since she purchased the business in 1992. If you access their website, you can take a fiveminute hearing survey which will help you decide if hearing aids are right for you. Sonotone offers free hearing aid evaluations and the latest in hearing aid technology from all the leading hearing aid brands. In addition, Sonotone sells batteries, sanitizers, dehydrators, lubricants and other ear care products and services most brands of hearing aids. Sonotone is a provider for most types of third-party insurance and has financing available. Hearing protection can be purchased at Sonotone. Specially designed earplugs and monitors allow musicians to clearly hear their music while still protecting their hearing. The protectors are useful for many

other occupations and noise-producing activities. Why open a Sonotone branch in Barnesville? Keenan explained, “I had wanted a second location for a long time, but one thing or another interfered, and it just never happened. I had been seeing patients in Woodsfield regularly and knew there was a need in this area. When my daughter went off to college, I had a little more time from family responsibilities, and a friend introduced me to the fellow that owns the building we are now renting.” The beautifully renovated building where Sonotone found a home housed the well-known Walter Thomas Men’s Clothing Store for over 70 years. “When I walked in, I knew this was the place, and the rest is history,” said Keenan. “I’m kind of an old soul. I always enjoyed antiquing around Barnesville, and this space is perfect for incorporating antiques into the décor” So customers can enjoy looking at memorabilia from the men’s store as well as antique audiometers and hearing aids and other vintage sound-related items such as horns, bells, vintage telephones and musical instruments. Sonotone Hearing Aid Center West is located at 115 E. Main St. in Barnesville. Phone: 740-619-0331 or 888-3000817. Visit the website at

Barnesville Memorial Park The Barnesville Memorial Park offers facilities the equal of those in much larger communities. The Albert S. George Youth Center provides space for dances and after-school and summer youth activities. There are three lighted ball-fields complete with a covered grandstand and concession area. A 12-acre lake provides boating and fishing opportunities. In the summer, a cool leisurely dip in the junior Olympic sized swimming pool is just the thing. In 2002, the community pulled together to construct the “Amazing Playground,” a structure that will delight your little ones. An amphitheater provides a comfortable venue for summer concerts and other presentations. The Mother’s Club enclosed shelter is available for all sorts of gatherings. Barnesville takes care of its resources, and during the past year, a number of improvements have been made at the park. According

to Rich Wells, Park Director, “We basically tore out the old tennis courts and completely replaced the blacktop surface and re-striped. There are new nets and posts, and new fencing around the courts. We really have two brand new regulation tennis courts.” Wells also reported an area near the ball-fields was resurfaced and four regulation basketball hoops installed along with two eight-foot hoops for the younger kids. More blacktop was used to create an enclosed double-batting cage near the baseball and softball fields. A new fountain in the lake aerates the water and creates a beautiful appearance during the warmer months. In addition, this was the first season visitors to the park could enjoy the new walking trail around the lake. The park is truly a gem for the Barnesville community, and it just gets better and better!

the belmont co. victorian mansion museum Gets A New Porch

Visitors to Barnesville thrill to see the state of the art restoration of the 1893 Romanesque-style Belmont County Victorian Mansion Museum. The splendor and elegance of the era is especially evident during the Christmas season when the Hospice of Guernsey organization decorates the mansion for an 1890s Christmas celebration. The mansion’s 26 rooms are resplendent with fine carved woodwork, moldings, nine fireplaces, 22K gold decorations, decorative locks and hinges, and lighting fixtures representative of the times. Working instruments grace the music room, and three dozen antique clocks keep the time from positions on mantels and shelves throughout the mansion. All the rooms are furnished with the finest elements of the day. Children enjoy viewing the antique doll house, and all ages will enjoy the new collection of 50 historically accurate Victorian dolls dressed in fashions dating from 1830 to 1900. The dolls were a gift from nationally known West Virginia fashion artist and teacher, Pete Ballard. The museum also houses one of Ohio’s largest collections of Victorian-era clothing. The basement still holds tools and utensils of the day – even some of the tools that were used in the home’s original construction.

Ongoing efforts by a group of dedicated volunteers are directed towards ensuring the mansion maintains its original glory to the greatest extent possible. Recently, the 1893 Victorian wrap-around front porch was skillfully rebuilt. The center part of the porch had been torn down in the 1950s after sustaining storm damage, which left two separate porches. Now a duplicate of the original porch welcomes visitors, along with additional lighting that includes four Victorian hanging pendant lamps. The community gathered on November 29, 2015 to dedicate the porch and marvel at this community treasure that connects the village to its past. The museum is located at 532 N. Chestnut St. Guided tours of the mansion are conducted from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, May 1 to October 1. The museum is also available for meetings, weddings, teas or other events for 10 or more people. For information and appointments call 740-425-2926 and leave a message or call 740-425-1457, 740-425-2228, 740-425-1112 or 740-425-2273.

You can travel light because there is a guest laundry and can keep up your exercise routines in the free fitness center. Debbie Fisher, Manager, reports that one of the services guests like best is the free FULL hot breakfast. “We get a lot of reviews commenting on our good breakfasts which include eggs, meat, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, waffles and more – the works! We also receive lots of positive comments about our staff – both how well they keep the hotel clean and comfortable and what pleasant people they are.”

When there is a second full moon in a calendar month or an extra full moon in a season of the year, we call the phenomenon a “Blue Moon.” Susan Lapham, owner of Barnesville’s new drinking establishment, The Blue Moon Tavern, says she has had a longtime fascination with the moon, which led her to pick that name. When she purchased the tavern, the building needed a lot of clean-up and remodeling. However, when she learned there would be a Blue Moon on July 31, 2015, they rushed to get the work done and were very happy to be able to hold the tavern’s Grand Opening on a night with a real Blue Moon. “We are continuing to remodel,” said Lapham. “We have

vastly improved the bathrooms and in the bar area, we are taking the walls back to the brick to add that character and rustic charm.” Blue Moon Tavern serves three beers on tap: Yuengling, Bud Light and, of course, Blue Moon. There is a large variety of bottled and canned beers to choose from as well as many different wines available by the glass or bottle. The bar staff enjoys exercising their creativity to offer a unique cocktail or shot each day. The Star Spangled Cocktail was the special for last Veteran’s Day. There is a menu with great offerings of bar food: hotdogs, loaded nachos, Italian sausage, cheese sticks, jalapeno poppers, French bread pizza, and, “We have the best chicken wings,” Lapham said. Edamame and kale and spinach twists are healthy alternatives although a greaseless fryer keeps the fat content in all the food relatively low. An extended dinner menu is in the plans. While you are munching, enjoy the game. The tavern has three TVs, an NFL Sunday Ticket and a noon opening on Saturday and Sunday for the games. Live music and other promotions will be scheduled on frequent occasions. Contests will be held. One day last October, the tavern donated 10 percent of sales to the Susan B. Komen Fund. During the month of December, the Blue Moon does a winter clothing drive of coats, hats and gloves for children and plans to continue to have charity drives. And you will probably want to make sure you are around on the nights when there are Blue Moons --like May 21, 2016 when a seasonal Blue Moon will be shining down on us. Undoubtedly some special fun will happen! The Blue Moon Tavern is located at 126 W. Main St. in Barnesville. Phone is 740-425-3038. Special cocktails and events are posted on the Facebook page. Monday through Wednesday hours are 5 p.m. to midnight. Thursday and Friday hours are 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday – noon to 1 a.m. and Sunday 1 to 11 p.m. Ladies night is on Wednesday from 5 to 9 with drinks for the women at half price!
