Fort Shawnee
(no date), Fort Shawnee
More or less a concocted name to honor the history of this area, which is in Shawnee Township, a township which was once covered almost in its entirety by a Shawnee Indian (Hog Creek) Reservation. The village was created circa 1960 when township residents feared that the city of Lima would get all wild with annexation ideas; thus, the township interests created a large sprawling village with corporation limits that in critical areas (i.e., heavy industy) would serve as a wall preventing the expansion of the city.

Camp au Glaize (or Camp Grand Oglaize) (1794) was established here before the fort was constructed, also referred to as Fort Auglaize (2). It was used mainly as a supply base. Eventually it was discontinued. A reproduction of the original fort was built in 1894 at the point, but was torn down a few years later due to vandalism.

It was partially destroyed, but was rebuilt a few months later (January 1813). Burned by Indians in July 1813 during the second siege of Fort Meigs.

Fort Stephenson

A log stockade with one blockhouse built in June or July 1812 on a hill on the west side of the Sandusky River to protect the Sandusky Indian Agency (1806 - 1812), a government trading post, or Indian Factory, which was located nearby within its own simple log stockade. Located within the so-called "Two Miles Square Reserve", one of several Federal reservations granted by the 1795 Treaty of Greenville. Initially known as Fort at Lower Sandusky or Fort Sandusky (4). A party of Indians attacked sometime in the late summer or early fall of 1812, burning the fort and destroying the Agency. The fort was repaired and rebuilt in May 1813, enlarged to a one-acre stockade with two additional blockhouses, and renamed. The Indian Agency was not rebuilt. The British returned to attack the fort in August 1813. Only one small field cannon, a 6-pounder known as "Old Betsy", was used by the Americans during the attack and it was moved from blockhouse to blockhouse in a successful attempt to save the fort. "Old Betsy" can still be seen today at Birchard Library Park on Croghan Street. The blockhouses were sold and dismantled in 1818. Marker and monument located at 423 Croghan Street. See also Battle of Fort Stephenson from Sandusky County

The Erie Army Ordnance Depot (1918 - 1965) was located adjacent to Camp Perry. It is currently the Erie Industrial Park.

Sandusky Bay Forts
(1680 ?, 1740 - 1747, 1750 - 1753, 1761 - 1763, 1764), Sandusky Bay
A French fortified trading post known as Fort Sandoske (1) (1750 - 1753) was built in late 1750 on the north shore of Sandusky Bay, south of Port Clinton located near Gypsum or Hickory Grove, at the southern end of the "deLery Portage" between the bay and the mouth of the Portage River that avoided the hazardous water route around Marblehead Peninsula. It was built to keep British traders away from the area, who had been in the general area in 1745 and 1750. The fort was reported to be already in ruins in August 1754. Monument located at the southern end of Fulton Street.

The first British Fort Sandusky (2) (1761 - 1763) was built in September 1761 on the south shore of the bay near the mouth of Cold Creek near Venice (state marker located at Venice Road and Fremont Ave.), and located about "one league" from the site of the palisaded Wyandot Indian village of Anioton (1740 - 1747) which was probably near Crystal Rock, and about three and one-half miles northeast of the Wyandot Indian village of Canoutout (1754 ?- 1763) near Castalia. The fort was burned during Pontiac's Rebellion in May 1763. Canoutout was burned in retaliation by the British in July 1763.
(NOTE: the map shown on the Ohio History link for Fort Sandusky is actually a depiction of the 1812 Fort Stephenson at "Lower Sandusky" (Fremont).)
A replica of the 1761 British fort was built in 1971 at the Cedar Point Amusement Park's Frontier Trail.

The British started building a replacement for Fort Sandusky (2) about 0.75 mile west of the old French fort site on the north shore of the bay in September 1764, but the work was abandoned three weeks later in October (Fort Sandusky (3)).

The palisaded Wyandot Indian village of Nunqunhanty (or Junundat) (1740 - 1747) was located near the mouth of Racoon Creek or Pickerel Creek near Bay View in present-day Sandusky County. Also known by the French as Nicolas' (Orontony's) Fort. British traders from Pennsylvania were here in 1745. Exact location probably eroded under the bay.

A French trade post was possibly located in the Bay View area in 1680.
