About Us - Morgan County Herald: Site

About Us



The Morgan County Herald is steeped in history. We took root in 1844 as the Independent, which was a voice for the Whig party in the county.

Today – over 165 years later – we still strive to be the voice of the county, covering the people, places, and events that are relevant to our readers.

We are located in McConnelsville, the county seat of Morgan County, which is a rural area between the cities of Zanesville and Marietta, along the scenic Muskingum River in Southeastern Ohio.

Our county has light industry and agriculture, as well as a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. These include hunting, fishing, boating, and hiking in our surrounding hills and wooded areas.

With many historical sites and a state park, Morgan County is a popular vacation and tourist destination.
