Location of Wellston
Wellston is located in Southeastern Ohio, on the James A. Rhodes Appalachian Highway (Route 32), a four lane highway connecting I-275 at Cincinnati to I-77 at the Belpre/Marietta area. Also, Wellston is only six miles from Route 35, which connects I-64 at Charleston, WV with I-75 at Dayton, Ohio.
Wellston lies in the northern part of Jackson County near the borders of Vinton and Meigs County and takes advantage of an abundant labor force among these three counties. A railroad and locally owned trucking companies provide opportunities for Wellston industry. Wellston is also fortunate to be approximately 30 miles from the well-known Ohio University, the first university in the Northwest Territory, as well as 20 miles from the University of Rio Grande in Gallia County.
