Pomeroy Ohio Walking Tour
Pomeroy was founded in 1804 and named after Landowner Samuel Pomeroy. The village was incorporated in 1840 and was named county seat in 1841. In the 19th century, Pomeroy was a large producer of coal and salt. The first barges on the Ohio River were loaded here. This small town has long since lost its coal and salt industries but, is still full of people who are proud of the towns history.
