Helmick Covered Bridge
Originally built in 1863, at a cost of $2,107, the Helmick Covered Bridge was an integral part of commerce in the village of Helmick during the early days. The bridge provided access to two grist mills used by farmers from as far as 25 miles away. Named for Congressman William Helmick of Tuscarawas County, the covered bridge was built by John Shrake of Newark, Ohio. The bridge fell into decay and was closed in 1981. Citizens raised over $250,000 to restore the bridge and completed the project in 1996. Today, travelers can once again enjoy the scenic beauty of one of Ohio’s oldest covered bridges, the one and only in Coshocton County.
JHM originated in 1924 from a bequest of 15,000 items by David and John Johnson to the city of Coshocton. They wanted the city to establish a museum as a memorial to their Johnson and Humrickhouse ancestors. These native-born bachelor brothers collected American Indian, European and Asian objects while traveling worldwide and residing in Washington State. On January 6, 1931, a train left Tacoma for Coshocton laden with their bequest filling 109 boxes, 20 crates, 30 barrels, and 2 bales. The collection was given over to the Coshocton County Library Board of Trustees to oversee the collections and a museum. A defunct school building served as its site and it opened its doors in May of 1931. Additional contributions followed, including Ohio historical items and prehistoric Ohio tools and points. In 1979 the museum relocated to a new building in Roscoe Village.
