historic image of the Big Bottom Massacre "We do not erect monuments to the departed simply to show what they did, but rather what we are doing with the memories and inheritance which they left us."

Clement L. Martzolff
Big Bottom and its History
Ohio Archaeological and Historical Publications, Vol.15



Monument at Big Bottom Named for the broad Muskingum floodplain, the three acre Big Bottom park is the site of a skirmish between Ohio Company settlers and some Delaware and Wyandot Indians on 2 January 1791. The Big Bottom massacre marked the start of four years of frontier warfare in Ohio, which only stopped when General Anthony Wayne and the Indian tribes signed the Treaty of Greene Ville.

There are picnic tables, information signs, and a twelve-foot marble obelisk at this pleasant outdoor site.
