James C. Reynolds accompanied the National Road construction crew when they built their way to Truro Township from Zanesville in 1830. He decided to stay, and within a short time frame, he built a store that supplied goods and food to the few settlers and road crew. Reynolds was much admired, and by 1831, the village plat map was registered as Reynoldsburg. For the next century, the land was used primarily for farming, and the town eventually became known as the Birthplace of the Tomato. Alexander W. Livingston developed the first commercial tomato in the country in 1870 after 20 years of experimentation. Many of the townsfolk worked in his fields throughout the township. Located in the center of the state within a few miles of a major international airport and the metropolis of Columbus, Reynoldsburg became the bedroom suburb for everyone to reside in after a hard day's work in the capital city.
