The Mid-Ohio Valley is home to a variety of creative minded individuals. From the more traditional artists including musicians, authors, and illustrators, to local craftsmen devoted to keeping their age old skills alive and well for future generations to enjoy... Coast to coast, border to border, you'll be hard pressed to find a more talented group of artisans.
Defined by a rich history, the Mid-Ohio Valley continues to carry on the traditions of those who first settled here in the late 1700's, as well as embrace the changes necessary for continued growth. From bustling brick streets to remote mountain paths, sternwheelers to speed boats, mansions to museums, the MOV lifestyle offers something for everyone.
The pride of the Mid-Ohio Valley becomes truly evident whenever area teams take to the fields and courts. While the MOV has no pro sports teams, the enthusiasm for local high school and collegiate teams is unparalleled, and with traditional powerhouses like OSU, WVU, Parkersburg, Steubenville, and Ironton in the area, getting excited is pretty easy.
