Fort Defiance was erected upon this site by General Wayne August 9-17, 1794 and thus "The Grand Emporium of the hostile Indians of the west was gained without loss of blood."

From this point General Wayne advanced against the Indians and signally defeated them in the Battle of Fallen Timbers, August 20, 1794.

At this strategic center, in October, 1792, convened the largest Indian Council ever held on the American continent. Fort Defiance was an important military post in the War of 1812.
