Information about Miamisburg
 
About 1797, Zachariah Hole came with his family from Virginia and fearing fighting the local Indians, he built a stockade on the East bank of the Miami River opposite the mouth of Bear Creek. He found the Indians friendly. To the stockade came squatters, surveying parties, and settlers mostly from Pennsylvania who had taken out grants and lived there until their own cabins were completed; hence the small community came to be known as "Hole's Station."
 
On Feb. 20, 1818, four men from Pennsylvania: [Emanuel Gebhart, Jacob Kercher, Dr. John Treon and Dr. Peter Treon] offered for sale at public auction 90 lots in a new town by the name of Miamisburg. Situated on the left bank of the Miami River, the plat was divided into square lots containing one-fifth of an acre.

 The name Miamisburg was derived from the Miami Indian tribe that resided there, combining "Miamis" with "burg," which denotes a borough or town. By 1818, the unincorporated community had become a village and achieved City status about 100 years later.
