Coal Run is an unincorporated community in northeastern Waterford Township, Washington County, Ohio, United States.[2] Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 45721.[3] It is located along State Route 60 between the villages of Beverly and Lowell. The Muskingum River flows past the community.[2]

In 1996, Coal Run was declared a historic district and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Eighty-seven buildings in the community, plus two other non-building sites, compose the historic district, which covers an area of approximately 138 acres (56 ha). A range of architectural styles are present in the district, including the Federal and Victorian styles. Varied as well are the uses of the buildings: many houses are present, but shops, a post office, and a cemetery are also included within its boundaries. The most distinctive building within Coal Run is known as the Mason House; built in 1802, it is listed on the National Register by itself as well as qualifying as a contributing property to the district.[1]
