    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.

    Environmental History

    More than 2,500 plant species have been found in Ohio. The pitch pine, bigleaf magnolia, sourwood, witch-hazel, pawpaw, hornbeam, various dogwoods, species of oak, maple, poplar, ash, elm, hickory, birch, beech grow in the state, along with butternut, black walnut, wild black cherry, black locust, and sycamore. 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. Acting on the premise that the largest problem facing wildlife is the destruction of their habitat, the Division of Wildlife of the Department of Natural Resources has instituted an ambitious endangered species program. 20 Ohio animal species are now endangered or threatened, including the bald eagle, Indiana bat, and piping plover.
