Who were the "Zoarites?" They were a group of German Separatists who settled in northern Tuscarawas County Ohio in the early 1800's and built the communal village of Zoar. They had a lot in common with the Amish. They spoke German. They dressed alike. They lived off the land. They made furniture. And they wore big hats. But the Zoarites had one up on the Amish in the construction category. The Zoarites built their own lock on the Ohio and Erie Canal. Soon the canal turned Zoar into a tourist attraction and by the late 1800's, the villagers quit their communal-style living and went their own ways.The Zoar video was created for the Zoar Community Association, a very hardworking and dedicated group that is trying to keep the village's historical significance alive. You owe it to yourself to pay a visit to Zoar, if for nothing else, to meet these people and let them share their knowledge and love of their village with you. You can purchase this video and others when you visit the Town Hall. Don't forget to go upstairs in the Town Hall to see some really cool artifacts.
