Fallen Timbers Battlefield
N O W O P E N
The Fallen Timbers Battlefield and Fort Miamis National Historic Site is managed by Metroparks of the Toledo Area. It is also an Affiliated Unit of the National Park Service.
Fallen Timbers is actually three sites:
Fallen Timbers Battlefield - The Battlefield in Maumee Ohio at the intersection of US23/I-475 and US24 (Anthony Wayne Trail). A parking lot and visitors center are located on Jerome Road, where the 1.4 Northwest Territory Trail loops through the wooded area where the 1795 Battle of Fallen Timbers took place. Along the way, visitors will encounter interpretive areas providing information about various aspects of the battle. A Visitors Center will eventually open on the site, and the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Commission is currently raising funds to create interpretive displays. In the mean time, the building can be reserved for private functions by calling 419-407-9701. [Directions]
Fallen Timbers Monument - This impressive monument to the important battle is across the Anthony Wayne Trail from the actual battlefield. A bike/pedestrian bridge connects the two sites. The monument is situated on a bluff overlooking Side Cut Metropark and the beautiful Maumee River. [Directions]
Fort Miamis - The British fort, located several miles away on River Road, played a role in the Battle of Fallen Timbers and, later, the War of 1812. The park is open, and much of the earthworks used to create the fort are still visible. [Directions]
Visitors can have their National Parks Passport stamped at the Maumee Branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, located on River Road [Directions].
