#13 of 14 in Things to do in Marietta
Located on the west side of Marietta, Harmar Village (established in 1785 as Fort Harmar), is home to historical homes, unique shops, a variety of dining experiences, museums, restored train cars and the only working, hand operated, railroad bridge in America. The Historic Harmar Railroad (Pedestrian) Bridge spans the Muskingum River connecting Front Street (downtown Marietta) & Harmar Village allowing individuals a pleasant, scenic stroll.

Please Note: this page was established and continues to be administered by a one-woman-volunteer-team, who is passionate about her home town. Any questions pertaining to Harmar Village’s businesses need to be directed to them for the most up-to-date information.

My objectives:

1) Provide a glimpse into the history of Harmar Village & Marietta through:

* Photos

* Research

* Personal accounts



2) Share a glimpse of the 21st Century by way of the area’s most gifted photographers



3) Promote festivals, activities & offerings of the area as time permits.

  • Harmar Days was a lot of fun with much to see and do. Harmar Village is the best kept secret in town. The turning of the bridge at noon was quite amazing. The engineering of the bridge is fascinating! Loved it!
  • Quiet quaint walks on the river banks and boardwalks. Town has extreme potential for siht seeking travelers. Hocking Hill is not far covered bridges that I hope they keep maintaining. Riverboat rides etc
