Powhatan Point is one of several small villages in Belmont County, Ohio, United States, along the Ohio River. The population was 1,592 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Wheeling, West Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area.

While "Powhatan" likely memorializes the Native-American tribe of the same name, the "Point" in the town's name refers to the confluence between the Captina Creek and the Ohio River. Powhatan Point is the closest town on the Ohio side of Captina Island in the Ohio River.
