Presque Isle (Historical Marker)







Location: Inside the secure Midwest Terminal, 3518 St. Lawrence Drive, Toledo, Ohio. Not accessibile to the general public. [Google Map Location]

Text:  Near this site scout Peter Navarre built in 1807 a log cabin close by an Ottawa Indian Village of 60 whitewashed cabins. Here he maintained friendly relations between white settlers and Chief Autokee. The 1833 Treaty of Maumee gave 320 acres of this region to the Indians who later sold the isle for $1,000. Presque Isle is now at the heart of Port of Toledo activity.
