1. Greene Ville Treaty Line Marker
Inscription.  The Greene Ville Treaty was signed with the Indians is 1795. Locating the dividing line between the United States (Northwest Territory) and Indian land was the problem of General Rufus Putnam, Surveyor General of the United States, under whom the survey was made. Marking the treaty line was a great engineering feat. The early surveyors west of the Alleghenies lived a strenuous life harassed by malaria, mosquitoes, the ague and the savages. The treaty line passes through Cardington near this spot.

The Treaty of Greenville, formally titled Treaty with the Wyandots, etc., was a 1795 treaty between the United States and Indians of the Northwest Territory including the Wyandot and Delaware, which redefined the boundary between Indian lands and Whiteman's lands in the Northwest Territory.
