More about this marker. The Treaty Line Road gets its name from the fact that it runs along the old Greenville Treaty Line. This treaty was the end result of the victory of the American military forces led by General Anthony Wayne against the confederation of Native American tribes that had unified in their resistance against American settlement of the Northwest Territory in the early 1790s. The treaty line marked the northern extent of Native American lands that had been ceded to American settlement.
