County Information
Main Street

Columbiana, Ohio Main Street, 1908

IOOF and First National Bank building


Columbiana was formed from Jefferson and Washington in 1803. Its named was derived from the combination of Christopher Columbus and Queen Anne. It was the scene of one of the northern-most action fought during the American Civil War; in July 1863 Confederate raiders under John Morgan were surrounded and captured by Union forces.

The principal historic Indian tribes in the area were the Wyandots, Mingoes, and Delawares. Throughout the second half of the 18th century white explorers, starting with Christopher Gist in 1750, came to the area. George Washington, while engaged in land examinations, camped in the area of present-day East Liverpool in 1774.

The county seat is Lisbon.
