Marietta, Ohio, is located at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingam rivers in southeast Ohio. It was founded in 1788 by 48 men from the Ohio Company of Associates led by General Rufus Putnam and was the first permanent American settlement in the Northwest Territory. It was named in honor of Marie Antionette, Queen of France, who had aided the U.S. in its war for independence.
We discovered this beautiful and interesting river town more than a decade ago and have returned several times...the most recent being during the first week of September 2011..as the town was preparing for its annual Sternwheeler Festival...and the photos in this gallery are from that visit.
Wow! Great photos and photography, Jack. Amazing difference between your take on this place and that of your "shooting partner!" Men are from Mars, huh? I really like every one of these. A great gallery...(just needs a little bg music!)
