In the early 18th century, French occupation of the area began with the construction of three forts between 1715 and 1733: Miami, Quiatenon, and Vincennes, the latter becoming a permanent settlement. In 1763 France ceded the area to England after the French and Indian War, and following the American Revolution, the area became a part of the Northwest Territory. A separate Indiana Territory was created in 1800.
