In 1650, the Iroquois Indians lived in the areas between the Ohio River and the Great Lake. The area was claimed by the French in the 18th century, who established trading stations in the area, aimed at controlling the booming fur trade in the area. After the 1754 French and Indian War, British colonies followed. At the end of the American Revolution, the British ceded control of their region to the developing United States. Ohio was then included in the Great Northwest Territory. The district finally received state status on March 1, 1803, but it was never formally declared. It was not until 1953 that President Dwight Eisenhower officially signed the original documents before the official declaration was made.
