The History Behind The Name:
Platted in 1826, the village of Fulton was one of 25 new villages established in Stark County between 1824 and 1836 after the State Canal Commission of Ohio chose the east side of the Tuscarawas River as the location for the Ohio and Erie Canal . Ten overland routes converged on the village and two bridges connected it to an older village on other side of the river. By 1830 Fulton had a post office, three warehouses, two taverns, two stores, seven houses and a population of 40. Renamed Canal Fulton in 1832, its downtown was anchored by the Public Square (Canal and Market) at one end, and the highly suspect character of Brimstone Corners (Canal and Cherry) at the other. The merchandising and storage district contrasted with the saloons and lodging houses—Brimstone boasted a liquor establishment on every corner, framing frequent spontaneous boxing matches.
