At the intersection of US 68 and SR 165, which marks the drainage divide between the Licking River to the south and Johnson Creek to the north, stands the small roadside community of Fairview. Four miles east is Ewing, an 1871 railroad depot site which became a thriving community with a bank, hotel, barbershop, hardware store, lumberyard, as well as professional offices for doctors, a dentist, veterinarian, attorney, and a newspaper. The railroad was an effective competitor for the Maysville Road.
