Early nineteenth-century settlers began establishing farms and businesses in the dense wilderness of the Cuyahoga Valley, but Native Americans were here first.
American Indians forfeited all lands east of the Cuyahoga River when they signed the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. The result of a decisive loss to General Anthony Wayne at Fallen Timbers, near present day Maumee, Ohio, the treaty opened the Ohio Country to pioneers.
