Brilliant, Ohio

Brilliant is an unincorporated area of Wells Township, Ohio. Located on the Ohio River, Brilliant was incorporated as a village at one time, but unincorporated in 1993. Much of the surrounding area is rural and residential, although some mining and industrial activity is present. Brilliant offers several recreational opportunities for the township, with a public park, pool and playground. Brilliant is also home to the Cardinal Generating Station, which is jointly operated by Buckeye Power, Inc. and American Electric Power.

Brilliant, which was originally called Lagrange, or La Grange, was settled in the late 18th century. For much of its early history, the village was a rural frontier outpost, with farming and hunting being the principal occupations. The 19th and 20th century saw the arrival of industry - a steam-powered flour mill and some oil and coal mining. The JL Novelty Glass Company was founded in 1880, and two years later became the Brilliant Glass Works, from which the village took its present name. The company was acquired by the Greenberg Glass Company in 1889, and operations were moved to Pennsylvania. In 1884, David Spaulding established the Spaulding Iron Works, which also owned a mine in town. Ohio Ferro-Alloys Corporation opened a plant at Brilliant in 1951 which operated until the company was acquired by a Norwegian firm in the early 1980s. The Tidd power plant, which opened in the 1940s as a coal-fired generating station, was redeveloped in the 1990s by American Electric Power Service Corporation as a demonstration plant for clean-coal technology.
