History

The community was originally founded in 1790 as Massie's Station for Nathaniel Massie, an explorer and entrepreneur who first surveyed Virginia Military District. It was the first permanent settlement in the District. It was laid out along the Ohio River near three islands. In 1791, Massie's Station became known as Manchester, Ohio, after Manchester, England, Massie's ancestral home. It was the fourth permanent settlement established in the Northwest Territory. By 1791, residents had completely encircled the community with a stockade. [5]

In 1933, after its bankruptcy, Alfred Holbrook College opened on the same campus as National Normal University, a teacher's college in Lebanon, Ohio. In 1933, Alfred Holbrook College moved to Manchester where it closed in 1941. [6]
