Fredericktown is a historic unincorporated community at the confluence of the north and middle forks of Little Beaver Creek in northeastern St. Clair Township, Columbiana County, Ohio, United States. It lies about six miles north of nearby East Liverpool and about 50 miles west of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is known for its numerous historic buildings and its abundant natural beauty.

History

Fredericktown was laid out in 1833 by George Frederick, and named for him. A former variant name was Saint Clair. A post office called Saint Clair operated between 1848 and 1918.

Historic sites

Despite its tiny size, Fredericktown boasts a wealth of historic buildings. These include an unusual octagonal building which was used variously over the years as a general store, a school and the village post office; two churches (one of which was deconsecrated and is now privately owned); several private homes constructed of locally-quarried sandstone; several log cabins; a one-room schoolhouse; a handful of barns; and the former Stagecoach Inn, which has been a private home for many years.

  • The Enchanted Village: The History of Fredericktown, Ohio by Regis Scharf and Gary Winterburn was privately published in 1992. It has long been out of print, although a new edition is being planned.
