Description: Duncan McArthur (1772-1840) was Ohio's eleventh governor, serving from 1830 to 1832. His estate, Fruit Hill, was located near Chillicothe--a city which he helped to lay out while working as a surveyor in the Northwest Territory. His time as governor was a period of economic growth in Ohio. Construction on the Ohio and Erie Canal was completed, and other canals were begun as well. The National Road was also under construction and made it as far as Zanesville by the time that McArthur left office. View on Ohio Memory.
