Perrysburg History

The construction of Fort Meigs is considered to be the starting point of the development of Perrysburg. In February 1813, following the war of 1812, soldiers began building this fort which is the largest wooden walled fortification in North America. The community got its name from the naval commander, Oliver Hazard Perry, during the War of 1812. Perrysburg was surveyed and platted on April 26, 1816, and soon after became a center for shipbuilding and commerce. In 1854, a cholera epidemic led to more than 100 deaths in the region and the city was almost shut down for two months.
