Main Street Charm
When you’re ready to take a break from the outdoors and explore streets instead of trails, McConnelsville will welcome you with history and hospitality. Located in central Morgan County, this village features an attractive public square lined with eateries and retail shops.
Inside Town Square Collectibles you’ll find home decor and gifts crafted by more than 20 local artisans. Take home a taste of McConnelsville by stopping in Meyers Specialty Market. Don’t miss the deli products, fresh fruit, delicious jam and baked goods like maple cinnamon rolls. A visit to Dori’s Flower Shop is guaranteed to brighten your day. Morris Hardware, a family-owned business, has been serving the community for 175 years. Stop in for a piece of local history and for help finding the tools for your next project.
Gracing the public space is the Twin City Opera House, in operation since 1892. Although the imposing building also houses government offices, the real star is the beautifully restored theater. Patrons can watch classic and first-run movies and enjoy live entertainment such as the Ohio Valley Opry (OVO). The OVO brings gospel, bluegrass and country music to the stage, performed by both local and nationally known musicians.
Visitors can learn more about Morgan County’s early years at the Morgan County Historical Society Museum and at several satellite exhibits and buildings both in town and in neighboring Malta. On the river, check out Lock #7, located right in McConnelsville, and learn more about this fascinating aspect of river travel.
