Tipp City History

Tipp City, which was founded in 1840 as Tippecanoe City, was named after the nickname of William Henry Harrison, a Presidential candidate. His nickname 'Tippecanoe' was itself derived from the heroism he portrayed at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. The name was later abbreviated as Tipp City by the US Postal Service. The city, which was developed along the Miami and Erie Canal, eventually merged with Hyattsville, a contiguous village. In the 20th century the vibrance of the city returned with the development of Interstate 75 and US Highway 25.
