Fremont originally developed at the site of an historic Wyandot village along the banks of the

Sandusky River. A French trading post was established here in the 1750s. By 1787, the United

States established the Northwest Territory of which this area was included. By the time Ohio

became a state in 1803, this area called Lower Sandusky was defined as Indian Territory.

In the early 1800s as tension built between Great Britain and the United States, the United

States built a fort in this area on the Sandusky River called Fort Sandusky. During the War of

1812, this name was changed to Fort Stephenson. In August 1813, the Battle of Fort

Stephenson was fought at this location. This battle proved to be a major victory for the United

States under the leadership of Major George Croghan. During this battle, Croghan and his

troops held off a British attack with the use of a single cannon called Old Betsy. The cannon still

remains on the site of the battlefield which is where Birchard Public Library is now located.

In 1821, Lower Sandusky was chosen as the County Seat. The name of Lower Sandusky was

changed to Fremont in 1849 in honor of American John C. Fremont, an explorer, politician and

soldier who was instrumental in acquiring California by defeating Mexican forces in the

Mexican-American War.

Home of

19th President,

Rutherford B. Hayes

Arguably one of the most famous people to call Fremont home was Rutherford B. Hayes, the

19th president of the United States. He was a lawyer who practiced primarily in Cincinnati,

Ohio. When the Civil War began, Hayes joined the military and rose to the rank of major

general. He was eventually elected to Congress and became governor of the State of Ohio

in 1867. In 1873, several years before becoming president, he moved his family to a home in

Fremont called Spiegel Grove. It was here that Hayes and his wife, Lucy, retired to after

serving as president. Both of them passed away at the mansion and are buried on property.

Also on the 25-acre estate is the first presidential library in the nation and a newly renovated

museum housing many of Hayes’ artifacts. The home, museum, library and grounds are

open year-round for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.

Fremont is also known for its vast parks system, the North Coast Inland Trail, many local

dining options and our Historic Sandusky County Jail and dungeon. Each year, the Sandusky

River experiences the white bass and walleye run which brings anglers from all over the

country to Fremont for some of the best fishing around!

In 1815, a group of settlers led by a gentleman by the name of Mark Hopkins from Genessee

County, N.Y. founded the city of Bellevue. Back then, the settlement was known as Amsden

Corners, named after Thomas Amsden who later opened a general store and town gathering

place. A large part of their business was done with Indians. The fur of wild animals was their

“currency” and was bartered for store merchandise.

By 1832, the Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad Company was formed by money received from

the state of Ohio. Three years later, a line from Tiffin to Sandusky was run through Amsden

Corners, thus beginning Bellevue’s long railroad history. The village later became the connecting

link between New York and Chicago when the Toledo-Norwalk Railroad ran lines. The Nickel

Plate and the Wheeling & Lake Erie railroads came to town around 1882 followed by the

Pennsylvania Railroad nearly a decade later. With the village becoming a railroad hub, the town

experienced a population increase. All of these systems are now part of Norfolk & Southern

railroad system.

Clyde

clydeohio.org

In the 1700’s, the area of Sandusky County currently known as

Clyde was inhabited by the Wyandot Indian tribe. However, it

wasn’t until 1813 that the first American settlers arrived in the

area, seven years before the county of Sandusky was

established.

By the early 1890’s, the city of Clyde had become home to the

Elmore Manufacturing Company, a producer of veteran and

brass era automobiles and bicycles. In 1909, the company

was taken over by General Motors and was relocated to

Detroit a decade later. Louis Krebs resigned from Elmore

before the takeover and, once the company had moved to the

north, decided to use the vacant facility to open his own

business which later became the Clydesdale Motor Truck

Company. The buildings, which were owned by Clyde

Porcelain Steel, burned down in 1945. After that, the Whirlpool

Corporation purchased Clyde Porcelain Steel and, in 1952,

began producing washing machines. Currently, this plant is

the largest producer of washing machines in the world and

produces both top and front-load washers.

General James Birdseye McPherson,

The highest-ranking senior officer killed in the Civil War.

Boyhood Home of

James B. McPherson

Clyde is also well known as the home

of General James Birdseye McPherson, the

highest-ranking senior officer killed in the Civil War.

His childhood home, located on the corner of Maple

Street and McPherson Highway, is open for tours by appointment.

The Clyde Museum, a jewel of history and wealth of information, has

an extensive collection on Sherwood Anderson, an author who wrote

the short story collection “Winesburg, Ohio” in 1919. These stories

are loosely based on his years of growing up in Clyde. While

traveling around Clyde, it is evident that the city has embraced the

Winesburg theme!

Green Springs - Green Springs, located on the southern

border of Sandusky County and partially in Seneca County,

was originally occupied by the Seneca Indians. During

the 1830’s, the Indians were forced to leave their land and

relocate to reservations in the West. By 1831, a gentleman

by the name of Jacob Stem bought the land from the

government and founded the village of Stemtown. He also

obtained a sulpher spring located in the area which is known

as the largest mineral springs in the world! The name of

Stemtown was later changed to Green Springs, named for

the color of the water that owed in the spring. Eden Springs

Nursing and Rehabilitation is now located there.

Helena - The rst settler to the village of Helena was a

gentleman by the name of Joseph Gain. In 1832, he laid out

the rst lots in the town then known as Elkhorn.

As more settlers moved to the area, a need for housing

arose. Josiah Fairbanks took up the charge and built 19

houses, a grain elevator and a brick school house. In

1885, the name of the town was changed to Helena after

the youngest daughter of Joseph Garn, Helena Thompson.

Garn had the rst oil well in the town dug on his property.

Many more oil wells followed and by 1909, there were more

than 4,200 wells operating in the area. Although that number

sounds impressive, production was less than a barrel a day

and the oil industry dried up.

When driving through Helena today, a must-see stop is

Chateau Tebeau Vineyard and Winery on State Route 635.

Nestled in a country setting, this beautiful winery features

wines produced from grapes grown on the property.

Lindsey - More than 30 years after Sandusky County was

established, a small town in the northern part of the county

was settled. The village of Lindsey, originally known as

Washington, was platted in 1853. The community is largely

rural with farms surrounding it.

One such 190-acre farm was originally purchased in 1852

by Philip Overmyer. He and his wife, Margaret, built a house

a decade later followed by some barns. The farm stayed in

the family until it was acquired by the Sandusky County Park

District with the help of the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund

Grant and a donation from the Roush family in 2002. At that

time, it belonged to Frances and Robert Roush.

Currently, the farm is listed in the National Register of

Historic Places. The property of Creek Bend Farm now

houses the Wilson Nature Center, which was built in 2014.

With the acquisition of additional property, the farm now

encompasses 310 acres. On site, visitors will nd a Window

to Wildlife, a library, educational classrooms and three miles

of hiking trails. Two miles of Muddy Creek runs through the

property as well. 150 acres of oodplain exist there in which

bird enthusiasts can nd migrating warblers, water birds and

bald eagles. The farm also contains various examples of

both historical and modern farming practices.

Woodville

The village of Woodville was originally mapped out in 1836. It was named after New York

native Amos Wood, a U.S. Representative who moved to Sandusky County in 1833.

Woodville was the halfway point on the Western Reserve and Maumee Turnpike.

Back then, the turnpike was commonly called “Old Mud Pike” due to the

profuse mud often encountered on the road. This was the first

established permanent route across the Black Swamp,

which is what this area was know as. Present

day Route 20, formerly the old toll road, stretched from

Lower Sandusky (now known as Fremont) to Perrysburg.

A mile marker for this route from the 1800’s still remains on Main

Street in front of the local pharmacy in downtown Woodville.

On the south side of the highway lies Trailmarker Park. Because this stretch of the

Portage River was a shallow point, the Native Americans routinely crossed the river at

this section. In fact, the Native Americans marked the crossing by bending the branch

of a tree that stretched over the west bank of the river. The tree trunk remained on the

banks of the river until recently.

Sanduskycounty.org Page 32


Woodville is known as the “Limestone Capital of

the World”. Limestone is the leading export of

the village. Martin Marietta, the only limestone

plant remaining there today, still actively

produces limestone. In fact, it ranks in the Top

10 among lime quarries in the United States.

Several famous people came from Woodville.

Woodmore High School graduate Jon Giesler

was an All Pro football player at the University of

Michigan and the Miami Dolphins. Another

Woodmore graduate, Col. Tom Henricks, was a

four-time NASA astronaut. The newest addition

to the Sandusky County Historic Barn Trail is

dedicated to Col. Henricks and is painted with

his photo and a space shuttle.

The Woodville Historical Museum is a must-see

for anyone wishing to learn more of the rich

history of this village. It is located on Main

Street along with specialty shops, the local

grocery store and home-town cooking at

several family-owned restaurants.

Camping

Camping has long been a favorite hobby of many

families. It permits the average person to escape

their “normal life”, find a spacious, often wooded

area, set up a tent or camper and “survive” in

the wilderness for a few days. It allows for an

absence from the hectic lifestyle so many of us

lead to a more relaxed, laid-back experience

where we reconnect with the land.

Sandusky County offers a number of diverse

options for camping in our area. Whether guests

are looking for a campsite on the serene Sandusky

River or a wooded site surrounded by firs, oaks and

hemlocks, we’ve got it! Enjoy some of the county’s best

hiking trails along with lake or quarry swimming, family

activities and much more. Many campgrounds in the area

offer both full hookup and primitive sites. Some even offer

cabins, cottage rentals and boat launches. Sandusky

County campgrounds offer a back-to-nature option to our

many hotels as a place to set up base camp and explore

the region.

Fishing

For generations, sport shermen have ocked

to the Sandusky River, located in Fremont in

Sandusky County, to take part in the walleye

and white bass spring run shing phenomenon.

The river, as well as the surrounding area, offers

numerous shing opportunities. While the spring

run is our most popular shing opportunity, good

shing can be found all year long in the county.

Photo by

Tesla Nagy

The spring run is known for producing some of

the largest walleye taken from Lake Erie each

year. The most consistent success on spring

walleye usually occurs in the deep pools that

line the Sandusky River between the State

Street and Miles Newton Bridges in Fremont.

People come from all over the country to sh

the bounteous waters of our river!

The actual start date of the spring run is triggered

by water temperature, so dates may vary. For the

latest shing informaiton and water conditions,

visit our website at www.sanduskycounty.org.

Be sure to also pick up our Angler Savings

Card that is available anywhere shing licenses

are sold in the county and also at the Visitors

Bureau. This card entitles anglers to discounted

hotels, food and more!

Additionally for the shing enthusiast, Fremont

will hold its 3 rd Annual Fishing and Outdoor

Festival in downtown Fremont on May 18. This

fun-lled event features a 2,500 gallon Hawg

Trough mobile sh tank, shing demonstrations,

a shing contest, boats, vendors, food,

entertainment and much, much more.

Bird and

Eagle Watching

Sandusky County is located along the bird migration superhighway. This gives us the

opportunity to see many species of exotic and colorful birds as they make their way to

their breeding grounds in Canada where they spend their summers and fly as far away as

South America in the winter. Great birding spots include Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, Blue

Heron Reserve, White Star Park, Wolf Creek, Creek Bend Farm and other parks in the

county.

Each spring, neighboring Ottawa County celebrates the Biggest Week of Birding with a

10-day festival at the world-famous Magee Marsh featuring birding events and

hotspots. This year’s Biggest Week takes place May 3-12.

Sandusky County is top in the state among the highest concentration of

Bald Eagle nests with over 40 nests recorded last

year. Back in the 1970s, eagles were nearly

extinct with only four breeding pairs across the

entire state. Several factors contributed to this

but the use of a chemical called DDT was a main

factor in this decline. This chemical was

outlawed in the mid-70s and a

fostering program began across

the state to help increase the

population once again. By the

year 1995, the number of nests

greatly increased to 27

statewide.

Sanduskycounty.org Page 38

A very active place to

see the American Bald Eagle

in Sandusky County is along the

Sandusky River. A cruise on the river

during peak summer months can reveal

up to 60 sightings of this once

endangered and majestic bird!

An excellent Bald Eagle watching

location is River Cliff Park, located

on the Sandusky River at

1329 Tiffin Street in

Fremont.


Birding by Month

January

Midwinter brings small visitors from the north. They find

shelter in meadows, woodlands and marshes. You can find

a variety of waterfowl wherever there is an opening in the

river, bay or lake ice.

February

The moderate temperatures in the last half of the month

bring the first robins, killdeer, woodcocks and blackbirds.

March

After the frozen marshes begin to thaw, the flights of

migrating waterfowl begin. Early flights of pintails,

mallards, tundra, swans, black ducks and many others

follow the freeze line.

April

Spring migration increases in intensity, bringing over 300

species of birds to the area. A large number of raptors, the

first waves of shorebirds and a wide variety of songbirds

appear.

May

Warbler-mania strikes! Many species of these colorful

songbirds come to the area to rest and refuel before

continuing their journey.

June

Nesting season begins. Each bird finds its favorite habitat

(field, thicket, tree-top, marsh). Birding is at its best as the

last of the shorebirds are heading north.

July

Singing begins to wane; nesters are busy nesting. The first

southbound sandpipers and plovers appear.

August

The height of migration from south-bound shorebirds takes

place on mudflats or marshes of any kind.

September

The warblers return in large numbers in the fall. However,

they're quieter and duller in color.

October

Indians called this the "Month of sparrows" in weed patches

everywhere. A few you might see are the white-throated

sparrow, swamp sparrow and the fox sparrow.

November

Migrant songbirds have mostly cleared out. Huge flocks of

Bonaparte's gulls and red-breasted mergansers invade.

Marshes can be thick with waterfowl.

December

Winter sets in and shorter days sometimes bring boreal

songbirds.
