Named as one of Ohio’s Best Hometowns in 2018 by Ohio magazine, Marietta is a popular destination for history lovers and families. Established in 1788, Marietta is the oldest city in Ohio, and the first official American settlement territory north and west of the Ohio River. Known as the “Riverboat Town,” it is located at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers.

The Castle was the home of some of Marietta’s most prominent and influential citizens. The property was leased as early as 1808 by a potter and his family, making it one of the earliest pottery manufacturing sites in the entire Northwest Territory. The Gothic Revival house was built in 1855, and a carriage house was completed just three years later.
