History

Heath was incorporated as a village in 1952, with Richard Hoback being named the first mayor. Over the next decade Heath grew quickly, going from a population of 2,426 in 1960 to 6,066 in 1965, when it became the 196th city in Ohio. In 1986 it became the home of the first and only indoor shopping mall in Licking County, Indian Mound Mall. By this time population growth had slowed, to a total of 7,231 by 1990.[3] Despite the large population growth on the western edge of Licking County, Heath remains the third largest municipality in the county, and one of only three cities. Heath was host to Newark Air Force Base, the seat of United States Air Force metrology. Currently, this function is served by AFMETCAL and the contractor-driven Air Force Primary Standards Lab."562D". http://www.robins.af.mil/library/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=8361.
