Introduction to Sandusky, Ohio
Originally, Sandusky was inhabited by the Seneca Native Americans. In fact, the area derived its name from an Indian term meaning "cold water." However, some also believe it was named after a Polish fur trader called Antoni Sadowski or Jacob Sodowsky. The Fort Sandusky was built around 1794. The area was first settled in by non-natives in 1816.
