Buckeye Furnace.

Milton Township is one of the three original townships of Jackson County, Ohio and was one of the earliest settled. Being in iron country, Milton was home to most furnaces in the county: Buckeye built in 1851, Cornelia built in 1853, Latrobe built in 1854, Milton built in 1873, Wellston built in 1873, and the Eliza furnace built in 1878. Eliza was named in honor of Eliza Wells, wife of Harvey Wells, founder of Wellston and builder of the furnace.

Among the early settlers were James Andrews, who came in 1806, and was a justice of the peace for twenty seven years. He also served as a captain in the war of 1812. Abraham Doty also came in 1816; William Lockhart, in 1808; John Woodburn, in 1825. Other early settlers were: Peter Brubaker, Joseph Bechtel, Joseph Charles, John Clay, John Hazlett, Henry Keever, John Neal and Michael Smeltzer.
