MIFFLIN, OH - Ohio’s newest Scenic Byway, The Johnny Appleseed Historic Byway, was announced Monday in Mifflin in Ashland County.

The Johnny Appleseed Historic Byway’s routes are State Route 39 from Loudonville, northwest through Perrysville and Lucas, and ending in Mansfield; and State Route 603 from Mifflin to Malabar Farm where it ends at State Route 95.

The journey tells the story of John “Appleseed” Chapman who spent the vast majority of his adult life in and throughout north central Ohio, spreading the seeds of fruit, as well as faith, to Ohio’s early pioneers.

Both routes pass by and through Appleseed’s land holdings, apple nursery sites, Native American villages and locations of important events in which Appleseed was involved during the War of 1812.

The Johnny Appleseed Historic Byway’s vision statement is to “enhance all lives of those who pass this way.” 

The Appleseed byway project, in the making for a number of years, was awarded official Ohio Scenic Byways Program designation at the program’s quarterly review committee meeting on March 9.

It is the 27th in Ohio’s byway program.
