Marietta (43 images)

Marietta (pop: 14,515) is essentially the birthplace of Ohio and the American West. Founded by the Ohio Company (re: New Englanders), it was the first settlement in the Northwest Territory. Once a village for the Hopewell Native Americans with various burial mounds throughout the area, Marietta quickly became a hub for western America in the 1700's. Quaint historic districts, a rather large downtown, Marietta College, and various attractions keep the wonderful river city alive and well. For more on Marietta's history, see this wonderful website. Marietta shares a combined metropolitan area with Parkersburg, West Virginia at around 151,237.
