WVHS LogoThe Walhonding Valley has a colorful past rich in heritage and culture. Prehistoric Indians once mined hills of Jefferson Township for flint. Its prairies were the first to be settled in what is now Coshocton County, and it waterways have been central to life itself, sustaining early Indian villages and later on farms and centers of commerce. The legends of Johnny Appleseed and "White Woman's Rock" echo yet today, and legacies of hard work, family values and community spirit are evidenced all along the old canals and railways that brought prosperity to the countrysides.
