What clues to the past are hidden in the back alleys and brick passageways of downtown Marietta?
Join Hidden Marietta’s local history guides on a search for evidence of fires, floods and public improvement projects gone horribly wrong. We may even encounter a few faded ads for forgotten businesses and products that no longer exist. This tour is like stepping into a time machine, as you dig into a past that still lingers along the cobbled streets of Ohio’s oldest town.
Put on your history detective’s hat, a pair of comfortable shoes and grab your camera. Let’s see what we can find!
