After Europeans arrived in the Americas, the land that became Ashtabula County was originally part of the French colony of Canada (New France), which was ceded in 1763 to Great Britain and renamed Province of Quebec. In the late 18th century the land became part of the Connecticut Western Reserve in the Northwest Territory, then was purchased by the Connecticut Land Company in 1795.

Ashtabula County fostered a very large Finnish American community around the turn of the twentieth century.

Ashtabula County has eighteen extant covered bridges. Of these, nine were constructed prior to 1900.
