All things considered, I really want to finish this project. Accidentally, it began when I moved to the Cincinnati area and started photographing towns along the Ohio River. Eventually, I realized I had a project.
Parkersburg, West Virginia, was called Newport when it was first settled shortly after the American Revolution. It was renamed Parkersburg in 1810 after a legal battle with the city founders and the Revolutionary War Veteran Alexander Parker, who was given a land grant.
Today, you can find lots of history to explore in this Ohio River Town, the 4th largest town in West Virginia.
