Upper Sandusky History

Upper Sandusky was originally a village inhabited by the Wyandot Indians. During the early 1800s, African Americans arrived and also made the area their home. However, by the 1840s very few Indians remained. Upper Sandusky was declared the county seat of Wyandot County in 1848. The primary occupation during the 1850s was farming. Due to the advantages of being situated among different transportation routes, Upper Sandusky steadily prospered as a community in the 19th and 20th centuries.
