Sunbury was planned from the beginning to be a stagecoach stop. Lawrence Myers, the town’s founder, built an inn near the intersection of two major stagecoach routes (the Old Walhonding Trail and the Delaware Newark Pike), anticipating a large number of stagecoach passengers.
In 1820, the first stagecoach from Mt. Vernon arrived in Sunbury. Famous stagecoach passengers that stopped in Sunbury included:
William Henry Harrison
Rutherford B. Hayes
In 1832, Sunbury served as the origin of Ohio’s inaugural railroad line, which carried goods and passengers to nearby communities. The railway later expanded to other parts of the state and beyond. As train transportation gained popularity, the last stagecoach departed from Sunbury in 1873.
