History

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 a new elm tree was planted in 2012. Logan Elm is managed locally by Pickaway County Parks.
