      The first road through Sciota township was built about 1858.  The town of Sciota was organized as Clarksville in 1867 by William B. Clark.  It was later renamed Amicus and then Sciota after the township in which it was located.  "Among the early merchants were Obermeyer & Brothers, J.R. Seybold, R.L. Shouse and Silas Webb."
