SOUTH WESTERN REGION

 

This area is bounded by the Ohio River and has the Miami River passing thru it.  The rivers allowed access to the region and many people have lived here.  There is considerable evidence that it was the Adena who built the Miamisburg Mound sometime in between 800 and 100 AD.  The area next became the home to the Miami and Shawnee nations.  It is from the Miami that many of the regions features got their names.  Once Ohio was open for settlement Cincinnati was founded and traffic on the Ohio River turned it into a booming town.  The area is the boyhood home of Ulysses S Grant and William Henry Harrison is buried here.  Dayton is became the home of aviation and there is much to explore there.

 

Today the area has preserved its history while adding amusement parks, museums, a great zoo and many other attractions.
