Village of Hoskinsville

Hoskinsville is an unincorporated village, and was historically a post village, in the southwestern part of the township of Noble, county of Noble, state of Ohio, United States of America. It is situated in the southwest quarter of section 25 of township 8, range 10 (2nd Congressional Survey). The village was in Brookfield Township and Morgan County until 1851 when Noble County was erected and Brookfield lost its eastern tier of sections to Noble Township.


The Hoskinsville Post Office was established on 20 February 1827, and named in honor of its first postmaster, Col. Erastus Hoskins. In 1830 it was supplied with a weekly mail from McConnelsville and Barnesville. The post office was discontinued on 28 February 1910.

The village of Hoskinsville was platted by John F. Talley for the proprietor, E.E. Parrish. It was surveyed in February 1839, and the plat was recorded in Morgan County on 22 Oct. 1840. The first house was erected by James Needham, a shoe maker. The first store was started by a man named Saveall.
