Founded in July 29, 1797 by proclamation of Governor Arthur St. Clair, six years before Ohio was granted statehood.
It was named for Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, Secretary of State, and Vice President
of the United States at the time of the County’s creation.
Its county seat is Steubenville
In 1786, the United States built Fort Steuben to protect the government surveyors mapping the land west of the
Ohio River. When the surveyors completed their task a few years later, the fort was abandoned. In the meantime,
settlers had built homes around the fort; they named their settlement La Belle. When the County was created in
1797, La Belle was selected as the County seat. The town was subsequently renamed Steubenville, in honor of the
Market Street in Steubenville
