For a taste of American history, head west to Belpre, Little Hocking, Barlow and Vincent. A history buff’s paradise, western Marietta-Washington County is home to Ohio’s first library, historic covered bridges, and destinations that will transport you back to the time when the first settlers came to start a life north of the Ohio River. Perhaps the most notable destination in the area is the Belpre Farmers Castle Museum. The Farmers Castle Museum is named for the fortification that protected early pioneers from Indian attacks.
Bring Ohio history to life by visiting western Washington County. Stop by an antique shop to uncover treasures of yesteryear, or settle back with a glass of wine and some tasty treats at the Unicorn Wine Guild.
