It is located 71mi south of Cleveland and 119mi northeast of Columbus. The population was 17,288 at the 2010 census.Because of the presence of coal and clay, early industry in the city centered on mining interests and the manufacture of steel, canned goods, roofing tile, sewer pipe, bricks, vacuum cleaners, stovepipes, carriages, flour, brooms, and pressed, stamped, and enameled goods.New Philadelphia is a principal city in the New Philadelphia–Dover, OH Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Tuscarawas County, as well as the southern regions of Northeast Ohio.HistoryThe Moravian Church founded Schoenbrunn ("beautiful spring") in 1772 as a mission to the Delaware Indians. The settlement grew to include sixty dwellings and more than 300 inhabitants who drew up Ohio's first civil code and built its first Christian church and schoolhouse. Problems associated with the American Revolution prompted Schoenbrunn's closing in 1777.The founder, John Knisely, returned to Ohio in 1804 with his family and 33 other pioneers, he also hired surveyor John Wells to plot out New Philadelphia in the same grid style as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
