Once home to the powerful Wyandotte Nation, Wyandot County emerged from lands surrounding the Grand Reserve. The landscape has evolved dramatically, from the backbreaking work of draining marshland to the creation of solar farms centuries later. The Mission Church, Indian Mill and Colonel Crawford Monument link the county to its rich heritage, and the Lincoln Highway connects it with the rest of the nation. The county has played host to General William Harrison, President Rutherford Hayes, Charles Dickens, Medal of Honor recipient Cyrus Sears and Neil Armstrong. Author Ronald I. Marvin Jr. explores several thousand years of Wyandot history from its earliest inhabitants to the set of the Shawshank Redemption.
