Marietta OH is an Ohio River cruise port and town in Ohio USA (Washington County), with a population of around 15,000. The town is located at the mouth of Muskingum River's confluence with Ohio River.

The town was founded in 1788 by Yankees (colonists from New England). The first church was opened in 1796, the first college - in 1835. Town's early economy was based mainly on cargo and passenger shipping (by steamboats). Since the mid-19th-century the economy was boosted with the opening of the Baltimore-Ohio Railroad (1828), Belpre-Cincinnati Railroad (1860), Ohio Valley Railroad (1873). Steamboats regularly transported passengers between Marietta and Parkersburg WV (West Virginia). Two oil booms (1875 and 1910) attracted large investments. The Pure Oil Company (now Unocal) was founded in 1914 by the Dawes brothers.

The current-day town's economy is largely based on ferromanganese with the French company Eramet operating a large refinery here. The town is served by several major highways (including I-77 linking to Cleveland OH and Charleston WV) and by Williamstown WV's Mid-Ohio Valley Airport (3 daily flights connecting to Charlotte NC). Among the best-known tourist attractions are the annual Ohio River Sternwheel Festival (held in September, with live music performances and fireworks), Riverfront Roar (powerboat races held in July), Civil War Reenactment (September), Goodfest (music festival at Goodfellows Park), rowing regattas (throughout Spring).
