The Historic National Road in OhioEtna Township was formed from Harrison and Lima Townships in 1833. The village of Etna lies in the middle of the township from which it derives its name. Etna was laid out by Lyman Turrill, formerly from Vermont, in 1832 with lots selling for $3.00 to $5.00 each. Turrill first called the village Carthage but subsequently learned from a West Point graduate surveying the National Road that the site of his town was the highest point between Jacksontown and Columbus. He then decided to call it Etna after the volcano, Mount Etna, on the island of Sicily in Italy.
