WHILE?NOT?one of the largest communities in Belmont County, the residents of Shadyside and the town they call home have a rich history and heritage.
Last September, the town celebrated its 100th anniversary, officially becoming an incorporated village in 1912.
There have been many greats events to be celebrated in town. Shadyside's also weathered its share of tragedy, no greater than the June 1990 flooding of Wegee and Pipe creeks that took the lives of 26 people.
SHADYSIDE RESIDENTS?will come together and support any cause that benefits the citizens of the community. When the pool needed a helping hand to reopen, residents stepped to the plate.
But through the tragedy, the town and its citizens persevered, coming through stronger and more resilient than ever.
Shadyside boasts less than 4,000 residents, but the small town has an immense sense of pride. A quick drive down Central Ave. during football season, noticing the spirit signs and houses and businesses adorned in orange and black will point to that.
But Shadyside is proud of more than just its successful sports teams. Its citizens are involved and will rally around an individual, or the community at large, when times get tough.
