History

Cambridge was platted in 1806 and became the Guernsey County seat just four years later.  The town flourished with the construction of the National Road and, by 1834, Cambridge was served daily by four stagecoach lines.  Manufacturing boomed after the Civil War with factories producing doors, metal roofing, furniture and buggies.  By the 1880’s the community was a crossroads of the Baltimore & Ohio, Cleveland & Marietta Railroad lines, and the National Road.

Local deposits of natural gas and oil attracted glass and pottery factories in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The mix of rail and road provided a distinct advantage for business development.  Nearby coal mines also contributed to the economic growth and security of Cambridge, providing fuel for both industry and railroads.

Today, Cambridge boasts a revitalized downtown business district with an abundance of resident and visitor activity, embraced by preserved architectural building stock.  Nearly every building in the downtown is privately owned by local residents and features stores and businesses offering a range of commerce from antiques to specialty services and second and third floor urban-style housing.  Downtown Cambridge is home to five major banks, which speaks to the commercial soundness of the area.
