South to Fort Defiance Monument. In August 1794, Anthony Wayne ordered the construction of Fort Defiance at the confluence of the Auglaize and Maumee Rivers. Wayne had the fort built during his campaign against Ohio Native Americans to provide his men with protection and staging ground for their operations. The fort was a rough square with a blockhouse located on each corner. In addition to the stockade, a wall of earth eight feet thick and a ditch eight feet deep and fifteen feet wide protected the fortifications.

Henry County
Western boundary. History is alive in Henry County! Just as the Maumee River winds its way through Northwest Ohio bringing life and vitality in the 21st Century, it brought pioneers and adventurers all the way back to the 1700s. More and more hearty souls cleared the land and drained the swamps, allowing the world to take advantage of some of the best farmland to be found anywhere. Transportation spurred growth in the area - both the Miami and Erie Canal and the railroads brought people in and took goods out. Communities like Napoleon, Liberty Center, Deshler and more owe their vitality to the transportation boom of the 1800s.

North to communities of Archbold, Burlingtom, north to Sauder Village. Sauder Village was opened in 1976 by Erie J. Sauder (1904-1997). In the beginning, our name was actually Sauder Farm and Craft Village. Throughout the 1970's, Erie collected buildings from around Northwest Ohio that had been built nearly a century ago. And, over the years, his small museum and village have grown into the large living history complex that Sauder village is today.

The river's banks support an abundance of woodland wildflowers including jewelweed, violets and spring beauties.

Crossing the Sandusky River. Miles of boulder-strewn pools south of Fremont offer smallmouth and rock bass fishing mixed with great scenery. From the Ballville Dam downstream through Fremont, resident stocks of smallmouth, channel a flathead catfish, crappie and sunfish are joined each spring by runs of walleye, sauger, white bass and white perch from Lake Erie. North of Fremont the Sandusky River deepens and provides some of the best largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and pike fishing found in Ohio.
