Kirkersville, Licking County, Ohio

1920 Population - 266

         Kirkersville is a small village along the South Fork of the Licking River. The town was unique with its covered bridge on Main Street that the CN&Z bypassed with a trestle.
         One mile north of Kirkersville is Outville with a small depot on the PRR/B&O shared Columbus-Newark line. This provided train service not available to most of the small villages located on the CN&Z.

The camera is looking at shops on the north side of Main Street.

The camera has been turned to the west. In the distance the track swings to the south  side of the National Road indicating the western village limits.   In the very left of the photo can be seen the front porch of the house that also appears in the next photo.

The camera is pointed at the Witham Larimore home.   Paving bricks are stacked in several spots along Main Street, it looks like a project is about to begin.
