About New Philadelphia

The City of New Philadelphia Has a History as Rich and Colorful as the Valley that Surrounds it.

New Philadelphia Ohio CourthouseNew Philadelphia is the county seat of Tuscarawas County, Ohio.  It is the county’s largest city with a population of over 17,000.

As its name suggests, the city is laid out in the same grid style as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Even the primary streets – High Avenue and Broadway – are named after two original main streets in Philadelphia.

Today, our city has a thriving “Main Street” with many original buildings serving as home to locally owned businesses and shops, reflective of our pride in remembering the past while continuing to move forward.  We have one of the lowest crime ratest in the state, and recently was voted number four in the “50 Safest Cities in Ohio”.
