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  Delaware and Wyandot Indians on Jan. 2, 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 Indiana tribes signed the Treaty of Greene Ville.

There are picnic tables, information signs, and a 12-foot marble obelisk at this pleasant outdoor site.
