Newell is a small town located along the Ohio River in Hancock County in the extreme northern tip of West Virginia. It is part of the Weirton-Steubenville, West Virginia/Ohio metropolitan statistical area. As of the 2000 census, the population of Newell was 1,602 residents. The city of Newell is most well known for being home to the Homer Laughlin China Company, an American pottery company best known for producing the Fiesta line of dinnerware. The large, old factory sits on the banks of the Ohio River. If you drive around to the back of the factory, you will see the small outlet store, where you'll find first-quality dishes. On certain weekends throughout the year, visitors are also able to buy factory seconds at a large discount. Expect long lines on these days, however! Tours of the factory are also available. Reservations are required and available by visiting the factory's website. Other attractions near Newell include the city of Wheeling, the Covered Bridges Byway and the National Road Suspension Bridge. This pre-civil-war structure carried the old National Road (later known as US 40) across the Ohio River. A much newer bridge to the north now carries most of the traffic. You can walk across the bridge for some great views of Wheeling and the Ohio River.
