Fort Recovery in Mercer County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Greeneville Treaty Boundary Line
between Indian and Federal land. This line was
crossed in 1836 when the plot for the town of
Recovery was laid out. David Beardslee laid out the
land north; William McDaniel and David Larkin, the
land south of the line. Because they refused to
communicate, the north and south streets to this
day do not run "through." The "Village of Recovery"
was incorporated in 1858.
