Greene Ville Treaty Line
Greene Ville Treaty Line
Surveyed by Israel Ludlow, 1797- 1799
The southern boundary of Ashland County is a portion of the original Greene Ville Treaty. The line was established at the Treaty of Greene Ville signed August 3, 1795 by General Anthony Wayne and Indian Chiefs, and was surveyed amid great hardships. The treaty reserved all lands to the north of the line as Indian Land and extinguished forever all Indian claims south of the line. The treaty opened a vast area for peaceful American settlement and marked the beginning of the movement for Ohio statehood.
Erected 1968 by The Mohican Historical Society of Loudenville and The Ohio Historical Society.
