The Greenville Treaty Line established new western boundaries for the United States in 1797 and established peace between the United States of American and the tribal nations of the "Wyandots, Delawares, Shawanees, Ottawas, Chippewas, Pattawatimas, Miamis, Eel Rivers, Weas, Kickapoos, Piankeshaws, and Kaskaskias" following the Battle of Fallen Timbers.
Fort Recovery State Museum will be hosting a dedication ceremony "where a sycamore tree might have stood more than 200 years ago" and was a "starting point for laying out the Greenville Treaty Line". The public is invited to this memorable event

- "a stunning exhibit telling the history of the Treaty of Greene Ville. Greene Ville was the largest stockaded fort ever built in North America and it was the scene of the most significant American Indian treaty ever negotiated. The Treaty of Greene Ville of 1795 opened the door to the settlement of the Midwest and resulted in Ohio statehood eight years later. The Treaty also ended forty years of conflict over the upper Ohio Valley."

- Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations
- "From a young age, most Americans learn about the Founding Fathers, but are told very little about equally important and influential Native diplomats and leaders of Indian Nations. Treaties lie at the heart of the relationship between Indian Nations and the United States, and Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations is the story of that relationship, including the history and legacy of U.S.–American Indian diplomacy from the colonial period through the present."
