Maumee in Lucas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Treaty of Greenville
After a long winter with few supplies, deep distrust of the British and minimal shelter, the Native Americans were left with little choice but to accept the terms of the proposed treaty. In the treaty, Nations retained northwest Ohio as Indian land, except for several reserves granted to the United States. One was a 12-mile square, surrounding the foot of the rapids, where military and trading activities led to early settlement of Maumee and Perrysburg.
The treaty opened the rest of Ohio to the United States.
Erected by Metroparks of the Toledo Area.
