Maumee Overview

In pre-historic times, Indians (notably the Ottawa) were the first to utilize the rich resources at the present site of Maumee, Ohio, in the Maumee River Valley. Throughout much of the eighteenth century, French, British and American forces struggled for control of the lower Maumee River as a major transportation artery linking East and West. A decisive American victory over the British and their Indian allies at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794 (see Historic Landmarks in the Recreation, Entertainment and Special Events section) and the conclusion of the War of 1812 (see Fort Meigs in the Recreation, Entertainment and Special Events section) opened the way for American expansion and attracted Eastern emigrants intent on making a fortune in western lands.
