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. Please enjoy looking around the site. There are lots of pictures and information and maybe a little bit of fun. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me (Jay Robinson) Please Visit All of my Advertisers
