Near the site of the battle of Fallen Timbers, this small park contains a monument honoring Major General Anthony Wayne as well as smaller monuments to the soldiers and Native Americans who died in the battle.
The battle of Fallen Timbers on 20 August 1794, was decisive in bringing the Indians of the Northwest Territory to sign the Treaty of Greene Ville. By this treaty the Indians ceded southern and eastern Ohio to settlers. This brief battle, an overwhelming victory for Wayne's forces, was fought in an area recently ravaged by a windstorm, hence the name Fallen Timbers.
Fallen Timbers is administered by the Ohio Historical Society and locally managed by the Metropolitan Park District of the Toledo area.
