Marshall County was created by an act of the Virginia General Assembly on March 12, 1835, from parts of Ohio County. The county was named in honor of John Marshall (1755-1835) who served as a soldier during the American Revolutionary War.
Marshall County is home to the largest conical burial mound in North America, at Moundsville. The mound is 69 feet high, 900 feet in circumference at the base, and 50 feet across at the top. It was acquired by the state in 1917.
Moundsville is also home to West Virginia's second oldest public building - the WV Penitentiary.
Local attractions also include the Fostoria Glass Museum, Grand Vue Park and Discover Moundsville, the Business and Cultural District promoting Moundsville as a destination for shopping, services and the arts, for both local residents and visitors.
