The Long Magenta Line

Muskingum History

Muskingum University’s proud heritage began in 1837, when Ohio was an infant state and covered wagons were bringing adventurous settlers westward over the newly completed National Road through New Concord. The University’s Native American name, sometimes mispronounced and often misspelled, is a source of pride and an enduring link to the history of frontier America “beyond the Alleghenies.”
