In an article from last September 25 I told about the quick bike ride I did after we arrived in Fort Loramie that evening. It was a warmup for four days of riding. I took advantage of the opportunity to see a small segment of the Greenville Treaty Line I had not yet seen.
This photo shows the end of a segment of road that follows the line, just before the road turns away from it. What I look for in places like this are signs of the treaty line continuing past the road — perhaps in the form of field boundaries or fence rows. Alas, there are none in this photo. At the end there is a corn field that pays no attention to the boundary.
I’ve drawn a segment of the treaty line in pink on this google map. It’s the segment that runs from Fort Recovery to Fort Loramie. The satellite imagery that Google uses isn’t particularly good for this part of Ohio, but it’s good enough that if you click on the Satellite view and then follow the line to the east-southeast, you can see a few places where there do appear to be field boundaries that follow it. Whether any of these can be seen from the public road is doubtful. None of them is near a place where a public road crosses the line. Still, it would be something to look for on a future ride.
There is one additional place on my bike ride where the treaty line left a mark on the landscape, though. It’s along State Road 364, where there is an inflection in the road. It’s also a point where the boundaries of three Ohio counties (Darke, Mercer, and Shelby) meet. Unfortunately it was too dark for a photo by the time I got there.
