History & History Related Items

Perryopolis history:

Perryopolis is on land once owned by George Washington. It was established in 1814 and has parts of many of its original buildings, including George Washington's gristmill which was built in 1776.

Perryopolis was named for Oliver Hazard Perry, a hero of the War of 1812. His victory on Lake Erie during that war was heralded all over the country and the local people decided to honor his name at that time.

George Washington purchased 1,644 acres here when land first became available. He visited in 1770 and said, "as fine a land as I have ever seen, a great deal of rich meadow; it is well watered and has a valuable mill seat." The mill would eventually be completed in 1776. Once the mill was finished, it encouraged other business to come to the area to support and augment the business of the mill.
