The headwaters of the Auglaize are just south of you. You are on the old Auglaize-Miami portage trail, the most direct canoe route between Lake Erie and the Ohio River. Here, long before white men arrived and until 1817, was an Indian settlement — Tawa Town — which, during the Indians Wars, became a rallying point and served as a base of operations for the Indian warriors.
