Facts About Heath

This area is known to have been populated by the Hopewell Indians through the first century CE. They built large earthworks, including ancient burial mounds which are now preserved within Moundbuilders State Memorial on the north side of the city.This also has the Great Circle Earthwork, considered part of the Newark Earthworks, which has two other sections within the boundaries of nearby Newark, Ohio. The complex originally covered more than 3,000 acres and was surveyed before 1850 by a team for the Smithsonian Institution. The 1,054-foot (321 m)-wide Newark Great Circle is one of the largest circular earthworks in the Americas, at least in the construction effort. A 5-foot (1.5 m) deep moat is encompassed by walls that are 8 feet (2.4 m) high; at the entrance, the dimensions are even grander. The Newark Earthworks is operated as a state park by the Ohio History Connection. Designated as a National Historic Landmark, in 2006 the Newark Earthworks was also designated as the “official prehistoric monument of the State of Ohio.”

Early European-American settlement did not take place until the nineteenth century. Much of the county was originally devoted to agriculture. In the process of clearing and cultivating land, farmers destroyed some of the earthworks in the 19th and 20th centuries. Other development also encroached on the ancient works. After World War II, Newark Air Force Base was established here, and it operated for 35 years as the seat of United States Air Force Aerospace Guidance and Metrology Center. This function is now served by AFMETCAL and the contractor-operated Air Force Primary Standards Lab. Heath was incorporated as a village in 1952, with Richard Hoback being elected as the first mayor. Over the next decade Heath grew quickly, going from a population of 2,426 in 1960 to 6,066 in 1965, when it was chartered as the 196th city in Ohio. It is one of three in the county. In 1986 Indian Mound Mall opened here, the first and only indoor shopping mall in Licking County. By 1990 the city had a population of 7,231. Despite the large population growth on the western edge of Licking County, Heath remains the third-largest municipality in the county, and one of only three cities. Other residential areas nearby include Newark, Granville, and Hebron.


In 2002 Heath celebrated 50 years since it was established. The city hosts an annual Oktoberfest celebration at the Davis-Shai House. An Independence Day celebration takes place at Geller Park on July 2, which includes food, games, live bands, and a fireworks show starting at dark. The city has 10 parks and recreation areas that are maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department. These include Heath City Waterpark, Geller Park, Beryl Dean Penick Park, Canal Lock Park, Davis Shai House, Dorsey Mill Park, Forry Preserve, Hitchcock Park, and Hoback Park. It also has a Bike Trail System that extends throughout the city. From July 2011 to fall of 2012, the city had a major construction project on Route 79. The shoulders of the street were widened to accommodate the project. The city added medians to the middle of the road that included mulch with trees and flowers.
