Between Waynesville/Corwin andHarveysburg there is still a lot of rich farm land (see map below). In the past, as one traveled east from Waynesville, the land dropped down into a steep and wide valley, the valley of Caesar’s Creek. High on the eastern ridge overlooking the valley was Harveysburg located on the main road between Wilmington andWaynesville, Ohio. This road, which was once the Main Street of Harveysburg, is now State Rte 73. However, it has been diverted around Harveysburg twice over the years. Before these diversions,Harveysburg was famous for the famous “S“curve that lead up from the bottom of the valley into the village.
Please note on the map of Harveysburg below the “school“, “the pork house“, the “colored school“, and the “Friends Church“. This Friends Meetinghouse, on the far eastern end of the village, is the Hicksite Grove Meeting, a preparative meeting of Miami Monthly Meeting in Waynesville. The small Hicksite Friends Graveyard is directly south of the meetinghouse.
