Basic History

Ohio was first explored for France in 1669, but became British property after the French and Indian Wars. It was acquired by the U.S. after the Revolutionary War in 1783. In 1788, the first permanent settlement was established. The 1790s saw severe fighting with the Indians in Ohio. It was part of the vast area ceded to the United States by the Treaty of Paris. Ohio became a territory in 1799. In 1802 a state convention drafted a constitution, and in 1803 Ohio entered the Union.

The eastern prairie fringed orchid, lakeside daisy and running buffalo clover are now listed endangered. White-tailed deer, badger, mink, raccoon, red and gray foxes, coyote, beaver, eastern cottontail, woodchuck, and opossum are found throughout the state’s wildlife districts.
