Logan Elm features a historic monument with Chief Logan’s speech and numerous other plaques honoring American Indians and white settlers from the 18th and 19th centuries. Average visit time: Allow 30-60 mins


Established in 1912, this state memorial is said to be the place where Chief Logan of the Cayuga tribe delivered an eloquent speech on relations between American Indians and early Ohio settlers in 1774. While the massive elm tree under which the speech was supposedly delivered died in 1964, a plaque marks its former location and anew elm tree was planted in 2012. Logan Elm is managed locally by the Pickaway County Parks.
