Inscription.  
Land in High Demand
Even before settlement, the fertile Maumee River Valley has been disputed land. It sustained nomadic hunters, toolmakers and woodland tribes and served as an important travel route.

Settlement led to clashes with Native Americans, the Battle of Fallen Timbers and the eventual removal of remaining Tribal Nations.

Did you know?
One of the earliest and most important industries in the United States was the fur trade, which depended on navigable waterways such as the Maumee.

Treaty of Fort Industry
Fort Industry, not far from here, was the site of an 1805 treaty that ceded more Native American land to the United States. Although little is known of the history of Fort Industry or its construction, it is prominently featured in the seal of the city of Toledo.
