During the twentieth century, Coshocton remained a relatively small community. In 1995, Coshocton was the only city in Coshocton County. It boasted a population of twelve thousand people, one-third of the county's population. Many residents earned their livings through service occupations, including tourism and government positions, although a number of manufacturing jobs existed, especially in the production of rubber and plastic items. The biggest tourism attraction in Coshocton County is Roscoe Village, a restored canal town from the mid 1800s. Roscoe Village began as a separate community, but during the late 1800s, Coshocton absorbed it. Today, visitors can step back in time and envision what life in mid-nineteenth century Ohio was like. They can even take a ride on a replica of a canal boat.
