Official Website

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.

The county is best known for having nineteen covered bridges within the county limits, including both the longest and the shortest covered bridges in the United States.
