The Peace Park Blog is about the park we're establishing at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty Line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail between the McDonnell Trailhead and the village of Bolivar. The Greenville Peace Treaty was the first peace treaty authorized by President George Washington and our current US Congress! 2020 will be the 225th anniversary of the treaty signed on August 3 1795 by Mad Anthony Wayne and the American Indians.
It's inevitable that someone may lose or leave something behind. When we find anything, it's put in our lost and found drawer and we attempt to notify who we think it belongs to. If we haven't a clue who the item it belongs, we add it to our lost and found collection with the hope that it's claimed later.
We do not mail the items back, be sure to check your site before leaving.
If you suspect that you left something behind or lost anything, please telephone Joe Rinehart at the Towpath Trail Snack Shack & Peace Park 330.389.1192
Alexa and her friend Shannon, both from Vermont, were our 1st out-of-state Hipcampers.
We enjoyed hosting our first out-of-state campers, Alexa and her friend Shannon, both school teachers from Vermont. They decided to travel from Vermont to the Michigan peninsula for a summer adventure due to the COVID-19 quarantine and school break.
Our Peace Park Rest Area idea came about from my brother Marc sending me a picture of a really nice single table shelter that is on the towpath trail in Cuyahoga Valley in the Boston Mills region. Since our property is located at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail, we saw it as an opportunity to share the history of the American Revolution era Fort Laurens which was also referred to within the treaty. Fort Laurens is located about 1.5 miles east of our trail location.
