1. Greene Ville Treaty Line Marker
Inscription. This marker is located on the boundary line which was established at the end of the Indian wars to separate the American settlers and the Indians. It was agreed upon by the United States and the defeated confederated Indian tribes at the Treaty of Greene Ville. August 3, 1795. Except for the reserved sections shown on the map, including Loramie's Store, and seven other strategic areas in the Northwest Territory. The lands north and west of the treaty line were left to the Indians. South and east, the area, now freed from Indians marauding by Ge. Anthony Wayne's military success, was opened to settlement.

As a result, the greater part of what is today Ohio, experienced a rapid growth, and, in 1803, qualified as the first state to be formed from the Old Northwest. The treaty line was surveyed by Rufus Putnam and Israel Ludlow in 1797-1798.
 
Erected 1953 by The Sesquicentennial Year of Ohio Statehood, The Fort Loramie Business Men's Association, and the American Legion Post 355.
