The name Chillicothe is derived from the Shawnee Indian word Chalakatha which was the name of one of the chief settlements of the tribe. Chillicothe was twice the State Capital of Ohio — from 1803-1810 (when it was moved to Zanesville) and again from 1812-1816, at which time Columbus became the permanent seat of government.
