Local History of Wally Road Area in the Mohican Valley
The Walhonding Valley Railroad was a 43 mile stretch that ran between Loudonville and Coshocton. Its original purpose was coal transportation and in its later years was much more utilized as a passenger rail. It was known as the most beautiful train ride you could take in Ohio. When the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District was formed, several flood-control dams were built in this region as part of the master plan. When the Mohican Dam was built, the Wally line was essentially split in half and the line was considered useless. No matter, the rails were pulled up and used for armaments during World War II and slowly the process of reclamation started. Now when you drive down Wally Road in either Holmes or Ashland Counties, you are driving over the exact same route the Wally Railroad travelled. Just south of the Knox County line, Wally Road separates from its historic path enough to view the immense amount of manpower it took to construct the railroad beds and the massive sandstone bridge piers and abutments which are easy to view from several points along Wally Road.
The recreational development in the last 30 years has brought 9 campgrounds with 1862 campsites, rental cabins, & one motel with 50 rooms. There are also canoe landings for 5 different canoe liveries in the area.
The cultural uniqueness of Wally Road would be the traditions of modern day man. Many people have their “traditional” weekend that they come and camp or canoe on Wally Road.
Evidence of the defunct railroad exists up and down the roadway. Bridge piers, railroad bed and historic sites are evident still today.
Today one can choose any or all of the four competing seasons that garment the Wally Road Scenic Byway. The somberness of winter, the awakening of spring, the tranquility of summer or the artistry of fall, the Wally Road Scenic Byway has it all.
The scenic beauty of the Mohican Valley was here well before the Wally Railroad was built. It was restricted to a few river travelers in the 1800’s. Now the Wally Road in 2005 is available to be viewed not only by river travelers but also by vehicle traffic.
