About the Mid-Ohio Valley/Parkersburg Area
While in Parkersburg, enjoy the rich history by visiting Fort Boreman park, a former Civil War outpost at the confluence of the Ohio and Little Kanawha Rivers. Its high vantage point gives you a panoramic view of downtown Parkersburg, the Ohio River, and Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park. Take a 30 minute sternwheel ride down the Ohio River and visit Blennerhassett Island and mansion which often plays host to special events with characters dressed in period costumes. Learn about Aaron Burr’s connection to the Blennerhassetts and how he visited the area to conspire to overthrow the US government.
Looking for a place to stay that has a great story? Look no further than the Blennerhassett Hotel, a restore turn of the century hotel with luxurious rooms and fine dining. Who knows, Mr. Chancellor who originally built the hotel may just pay you a visit in the middle of the night. Each fall, take advantage of the ghost tours which the Travel Channel ranked in the top ten best ghost tours in the country.
For a small town, Parkersburg has a thriving arts community and you can take in shows at the historic Smoot or watch one of the six annual live productions at the Actors Guild of Parkersburg which is located directly across from Parkersburg’s Art Center. In addition to the developing historic downtown business district, spend an hour or so taking a self guided tour of the historic Julia-Ann Square residential historic district. Step back in time and see the grand homes built by the wealthy oil and gas tycoons that established the town. These majestic homes are still privately owned and meticulously cared for and many have undergone extensive restorations.
Microbreweries are popping up all over and Parkersburg is no exception. The North End Tavern is one of the oldest breweries in the state and the newly re-established Parkersburg Brewing Company is making their mark having recently won a national award for their Blonde on Blonde light ale.
