Ceredo, West Virginia

Ceredo, West Virginia (WV), a community on the Ohio River in Wayne County, was founded in 1857 and incorporated 1966. The town was named after Ceres, the Greek goddess of grain and harvest, because of the agricultural opportunities that apparently existed there at that time. Eli Thayer, the Massachussets congressman who suggested the name, dreamed of founding a manufacturing center at Ceredo coincident with his activities to aid the emigration of anti-slavery men to Kansas. The Z.D. Ramsdell House, raised by a close associate of Thayer, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
