Meet Manchester

The community was originally founded in 1790 as Massie’s Station for Nathaniel Massie, an explorer and entrepreneur who first surveyed Virginia Military District. It was the first permanent settlement in the District. It was laid out along the Ohio River near three islands. In 1791, Massie’s Station became known as Manchester, Ohio, after Manchester, England, Massie’s ancestral home. Learn More…
