Heritage Ohio enjoyed recent visit to Marietta

On behalf of Heritage Ohio, I would like to thank the greater Marietta community for the hospitality they showed us last week when Ohio Main Street communities and our board of directors visited for three days of meetings. The weather cooperated every evening when we got out on the street after being cooped up in meetings. The shops and restaurateurs were so welcoming. A highlight of our visit was the opportunity to celebrate with community members, the Smithsonian Magazine distinction of being named No. 6 best small town to visit, aboard the Valley Gem Sternwheeler for an evening cruise. Jean Farmer with Marietta Main Street pulled out all the stops to make sure every detail was considered, and we appreciate the juggling needed to sandwich us in between their celebrity golf outing and the Friday night Merchants & Artists Walk. Marietta, your community is a gem!
