About Marietta, Ohio
The first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory, Marietta was established in 1788 by a band of entrepreneurs, veterans of the American Revolution, and pioneers in education, medicine, business and social reform.
Today, Marietta is a city of beautiful parks, two rivers, 19th-century architecture, brick streets, historical landmarks and museums. Here you'll find one of America's most robust downtowns alive with shops, restaurants and businesses.
