The history of Northwest Ohio is interwoven with threads of myth, legend and folklore that come together along the banks of the Maumee River. Follow them with me as we travel from downtown Toledo to Grand Rapids and back on a journey that shows off the magnificent beauty of the Maumee Valley – and might also reshape your understanding of both the past and present.
Our tour takes in...
• Toledo's Middlegrounds
• Tecumseh's encounter with General Proctor at Fort Miami
• Dudley's Massacre
• The House of Four Pillars
• Roche de Bout
• Two ghost towns and a few ghost stories
• Nazareth Hall
• A story from a soldier at Fort Meigs
• Toledo's Gold Coast
We’ve built this tour around a 3-hour window but some say they enjoy taking the better part of a day to enjoy the tour and leave time for exploring many of the tour locations. There are plenty of delightful places to stop and eat while your touring – or, if you prefer, you can pack a basket and enjoy a riverside picnic in one of the many parks we'll come across along the way. Whether you are here for a visit or you've lived here all your life, you'll leave this tour with a unique understanding of Northwest Ohio and a great appreciation for the appealing charm of the Maumee Valley.
PLEASE NOTE: There is currently significant construction in downtown Toledo and in the Rossford area. We've made adjustments to the tour to accommodate for detours.
