Inscription. In earliest recorded history, the Erie tribe inhabited this land. The Iroquois Confederacy, particularly the Senecas, annihilated the Eries between 1650 and 1656. This area then became the "hunting grounds" of the Senecas and Mohawks. In 1730 Wyandots moved into this Ohio Country south of the great lake. By 1755 the Wyandots shared habitation here with the Senecas and Mohawks and later with remnants of other tribes. This land became a part of a Seneca Reservation by the Treaty of 1817. In 1831 the U.S. government relocated the Seneca tribe to land west of the Mississippi River.
