Travel Tips for Marietta

A BIT ABOUT MARIETTA

by LoriPori

Pioneers of the Ohio Company made MARIETTA the first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory. Founded in 1788, Marietta is the state of Ohio's oldest city. It was named in honor of Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France (1755 - 1795). The municipality is in southeastern Ohio where the Muskingum River joins the Ohio River.
I found Marietta very charming, especially near the Harbor where we first saw the Valley Gem coming in on the River, to pick up the day's passengers. The Lafayette Hotel, which faces the river, is full of local history. Also across the street, you will see a plaque reading that Lafayette landed at this point in May 25, 1825.
The city also offers its River Trail and the old Railroad Bridge, which is now a pedestrian walkway that takes you to Harmar Village. We also admired the Washington County Courthouse and the Lockmaster's House. Also we were amazed at the beauty of St. Mary's Catholic Church.
So overall, we were happy that we decided to spend the afternoon here (Tuesday October 19, 2010).

"THE LAFAYETTE"

Located at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers, THE LAFAYETTE is the focal point of the downtown Marietta district. The Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Hotel offers 77 unique Victorian style Rooms
Gunroom Restaurant
Riverview Lounge

Though we did not stay here, I could not resist going inside to see for myself, the grandeur of this Hotel. It was amazing, esp the Lounge. There were lots of Antiques and old photographs of bygone days at the Lafayette.

"MUSKINGUM RIVER"

Located in southeastern Ohio and approximately 111 miles (179 km) long, the MUSKINGUM RIVER is a tributary of the Ohio River. Once an important commercial route , it flows generally southward through the Eastern Hill country of Ohio - past Conesville, Trinway and Dresden to Zanesville, then southeastward past South Zanesville, Philo, Malta, McConnelsville, Beverly, Lowell, Stockport and Devola. It joins the Ohio at Marietta.
The Muskingum waterway is one of the few remaining systems in the U.S. to use hand-operated river locks.
