PICKAWAY COUNTY was formed Fairfield, Ross and Franklin, January 12, 1810.  The county has woodland, barren, plain and prairie.  The barrens were covered by shrub oaks and when cleared are adapted to the raising of corn and oats.  The Pickaway plains are three and a half miles west of Circleville, and this tract is said to contain the richest land in Ohio.  Here, in the olden times, burned and great council fire of the red man.  Here the allied tribes met Gen. Lewis, and fought the battle of Mount Pleasant.  Dunmore's campaign was terminated on these plains.  It was at the Chillicothe towns, after Dunmore's treaty, that Logan delivered his famous speech.  Circleville, the county seat is situated on the Scioto River and the Ohio Canal.  It was laid out in 1810, by Daniel Dresbach.  It is situated on the site of ancient fortifications.
