Jacob Light (1756 - 1831) platted the Village of
New Richmond in 1814 on 85 acres he had bought
in 1804. His village streets ran at right angles
to the Ohio River.

Thomas Ashburn (1769 - 1826) bought 875 acres from
William Lytle next to New Richmond. He designed
the elaborate town of Susanna, named after his
wife, with streets radiating from the river and
a public promenade on the river. In 1828 the
two towns were incorporated by the Ohio General
Assembly as New Richmond. Union Street is the
meeting of the two original towns.
