This ridge road west from Cadiz through Deersville to the Tuscarawas Valley is known locally as the Moravian Trail. Originally an Indian path, it became an important trail for the frontiersmen. The men who participated in the Gnadenhutten Massacre, March 8, 1872, used this trail. In June, 1872, as part of Crawford's defeated army fled eastward from pursuing Indians along this road. Both of these parties were led by Col. David Williamson, and the entire route from the Ohio to the Tuscarawas is know in history as Williamson's Trail.
