About Guernsey County

Guernsey County, located in the Appalachian foothills, was first formed and organized in January 31, 1810 from portions of Muskingum and Belmont Counties. It lost some land area during the formation of neighboring counties until it reached its present boundaries in 1851

Residents named the county after the "Isle of Guernsey," where many of the county's early settlers came from.
