This starred line marks the crossing in Knox County of the Greenville Treaty Line as surveyed by Israel Ludlow between 1797 and 1799; that part running from near Fort Laurens in the eastern part of the state, to a point near Fort Recovery, thence southwesterly to a point on the Ohio River opposite the mouth of the Kentucky River.
The Greenville Treaty was signed August 3, 1795, and by the terms of the Treaty the Indian tribes gave up their claims to the lands to the south and east of this line.
