Moscow, Oh

Moscow was platted in 1816 by Owen Davis. The town may have received it's
name from Frenchman who moved to the area who are said to have served under
Napoleon at the siege of Moscow, Russia. Over the years, the Village grew
in size to include a hotel, bank, grocery, a glass works factory and the
famous Moscow Distillery known for its fruit brandies. Moscow was also home
to a ferry boat, the Nellie Steele, which played a vital role in transporting people and goods along the Ohio River. Moscow was also home to noted abolitionists, Robert and William Fee.

As conductors of the Underground Railroad, the Fee's helped hide and protect
escaped slaves during the 1800's. William Fee's home known as Fee Villa,
still stands today on the northwest corner of Broadway and Water Streets.
William would place candles in the window of his home to signal to slaves
that it was safe to enter. Today, the candle-in-the-window image is part of
Moscow's Village logo. The logo not only demonstrates Moscow's proud
connection to its history, but it also represents the Villages dedication to
creating a bright future for all residents, business and visitors
