Greenville City Park
|Photos and Feature Article
by Monnie Ryan
The city park in Greenville, Ohio, is rooted firmly in history; this land once was the site of Fort Greene Ville. The fort, according to historical records, was built on the orders of Gen. "Mad" Anthony Wayne, whose army was fighting the native Americans. It was in Fort Greene Ville, too, that Wayne signed the Treaty of Greene Ville with the chief of 12 allied Indian tribes, bringing peace to the area and opening the Northwest Territory for settlement. The major tribes represented at the treaty signing on Aug. 3, 1795, were Chippewa, Ottawa, Pottawattomi, Shawnee, Delaware, Miami, Wayndotte, Eel River, Wea, Piankeshawa, Kickapoo and Kaskaskia.
