The principal historic Indian tribes in the area were the Wyandots, Mingoes, and Delawares.

George Washington, while engaged in land examinations, camped in the area of present-day East Liverpool in 1774.

Columbiana County was founded in 1829 and named in honor of Christopher Columbus. It was the scene of the northern-most action fought during the American Civil War; in July 1863 Confederate raiders under John Morgan were surrounded and captured by Union forces.

It was also the residence from 1809-1833 of Robert Justice.
