(p.47) CHAPTER 3 Finding and Founding Communities
Jewish Communities on the Ohio River

Amy Hill Shevitz

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses the rapid population and economic growth which happened along the Ohio River Valley, as communities were slowly founded and built. In response, the governments helped foster this growth with the development of public works. By 1811, the federal government began the construction of the National Road to connect the populous East Coast with the emerging trans-Appalachian West. It also discusses the success of Jewish peddlers and other marketing strategies the Jews employed during the time.
