Cincinnati in Hamilton County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Lytle Park Series
Southwest of Lytle was Fort Washington, built in 1789 and 1790 and named for President George Washington. The fort protected settlers in the new Ohio country from Indian attacks. It became the base headquarters for the Indian campaigns of Generals Josiah Harmer, Arthur St. Clair and Anthony Wayne. The fort was dismantled in 1808. A marker commemorating the Fort Washington site is located adjacent to the expressway southwest of Lytle Park.
