Times seeks input on area’s unique qualities

The Marietta Times wants to know what you think makes Washington County and surrounding areas unique.

What are the characteristics, people, places, organizations and activities that combine to make this area like no other place on Earth? Is it the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers or the businesses known for their ties to the community and reputations beyond? Is it the general history of the area, how much the residents cherish that history or certain specific events or locations? How about annual events and festivals that draw people here from abroad or tug them back home?

The Times is planning a special edition focusing on the top things that make the area unique. Submit your suggestions online at, by e-mail to or by calling 376-5447.
