1. Site of Logan Elm Marker
Inscription. This plaque marks the site of the Logan Elm, under which in 1774, according to legend, Logan, Chief of the Mingoes, gave his impassioned speech of vengeance to an interpreter sent from Lord Dunmore, colonial governor of Virginia. Logan had refused to attend the peace conference following the Battle of Point Pleasant, but fearing that a treaty ignored by one of the more powerful chiefs would not be honored by the Indians, sent his message to be read at the conference. It remains today as one of the most eloquent and pathetic speeches in history.

In its prime, this American Elm had a height of 104 ft., spread of 180 ft., and a circumference of 24 ft. Died 1964.
 
Erected 1974 by The Ohio Historical Society and the Pickaway County Historical Society.
