Marietta, OH

PO Marietta OH 3

Marietta, Ohio, lies at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers and oft times – in 1790, 1813, 1818, 1832, 1860, 1884, 1913, 1937, 1959, 1964, 2004, 2005 and 2011 to name a few flood years – has welcomed the rivers into its homes and businesses. The doozie, most agree, was in March of 1913 when the flood swept 120 houses away, knocked another 200 off their foundations, and the water was eight feet deep in the post office.
