Land brought people to the Ohio Country. First were the Native American Indians, then the immigrants from the Old World. In the early days people walked on the land that they would use, herding with them whatever animals they might have. They followed trails that animals and Indians had made. As time passed, many of these pathways became roads and highways. For some of their transportation the immigrants used water, including Lake Erie and the Ohio River. Later, they built canals to add to the natural rivers and streams.
Land in the Ohio Country gave these people places to build houses and barns. Later, they founded towns and cities. Also people planted, cultivated and harvested their crops. And they raised their animals on the Ohio land.
