Wauseon, Ohio

Day 413

     It was Hortensia Hayes, daughter of one of the town’s first businessmen, that suggested the name of Wauseon, Chief of the Ottowas, as the name of the town to the early town leaders in 1854, when the town was established. He was the Chief that was forced to convey all their lands in the Northwest territory to the United States government 16 years earlier in 1838. The only reason this town is here is because the railroad needed a place for water and fuel. There ain’t much here now.
