Maumee History

Native Americans, particularly the Ottawa tribes, were among the first inhabitants of the region now known as Maumee. The Maumee River provided them with rich resources and French, British, and American forces struggled for control of this river throughout the major part of the 18th century. The American victory in the 1794 Battle of Fallen Timbers, and the War of 1812, allowed them to utilize and expand this transportation artery linking the East and West. Eastern emigrants gradually came to this area and the town plat was laid out in 1817. The community derived its name from an Indian term meaning "mother". The 1970s saw a dramatic economic renaissance in Maumee and it is currently among the largest business centers in Northwest Ohio.
