the Greenville Treaty Line ran from the Mouth of the Cuyahoga River, up to the Portage, down the Tuscawarus, to the Crossing Place above Fort Laurens, then across ohio to fort Loramie, then on to fort recovery. From there it ran south west across Indiana to the Ohio river, opposite the Mouth of the Kentucky River. This line created a "Gore" of land in eastern Indiana, just west of the Ohio state line. This marker is on the line as it runs southwest to the Ohio River. Another marker is about three miles further south.
