Welcome

Welcome to the official web site of Mattingly Settlement!

The Mattingly Settlement is a historic area in Muskingum Township, Muskingum County, Ohio, United States. It was named after the many members of the Mattingly family who settled the area in the 19th century, the first being William Mattingly (1778–1857) who arrived in 1812.

Addresses in the area receive mail through the Nashport post office; Nashport is located about 5 miles west of the Mattingly Settlement.

Though the Mattingly Settlement was never officially incorporated as a village, it is still used by the Diocese of Columbus as the location of The Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (commonly known as St. Mary’s).

  1. Hi,
    My grandmother was the sister to Mon. Herman Mattingly. She is no deceased and buried in St Joesph cementary in Columbus, Ohio. I have grown up going to the Mattingly reunion when I was younger and now that my parents and grandmother is deceased I am interested in learning more about this wonderful settlement. I will be journing out to visit this weekend with my Uncle from California and his Daughter. I hope to be able to share some wonderful memories
