The Mid-Ohio Valley region features an intriguing blend between the western frontier of 1800 and the Victorian legacies of the nation's oil and gas boom. Here country roads wind through the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and past charming villages nestled along the mighty Ohio River. This area that George Washington once called Augusta is also rich in fine handicrafts, galleries, festivals, parks and historic sites, all tempting to the traveler. Add the natural opportunities to fish the rivers and streams, hike and bike the miles of trails and back roads, hunt the thousands of acres of wildlife areas and enjoy the serenity of the unspoiled mountains, and you've found a spot filled with natural and man-made pleasures.
