The Bicentennial Wagon Train was a signature event of both the City of Worthington and State of Ohio Bicentennial celebrations in 2003. The Wagon Train honored the early settlers of Worthington and Ohio. The Wagon Train traveled through ten counties across the State of Ohio. It began in Martin's Ferry near the Pennsylvania border on June 21, arrived in Worthington on July 5 for the Homecoming Celebration and parade, and continued on to New Paris near the Indiana border on July 14. Participation in the Wagon Train was open to the public. Participants were encouraged to wear period costume and bring along an adventurous pioneering spirit.
