Listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service, Indian Point has one of the earliest architectural works in this part of Ohio.
It is a beautiful and very interesting Metropark in Leroy Township. It’s on a triangular ridge, high above the confluence of Paine Creek and the Grand River. This was the site of an Indian Fort that dates back over 2000 years.
There are essentially two sections of the park — the lower area that has a flat picnic area near Paine Creek (which eventually joins with the Grand River) and the upper area, which has a trail that leads to amazing views over the Grand River as well as the earthworks of early Native Americans.
Scenic natural areas and historical sites provide opportunities for play, picnics, hiking, exploring the waterway for native flora and fauna, and stepping back in time.
Before the arrival of the first European settlers, a Native American tribe of the Whittlesey Culture occupied this region for nearly 800 years. However, this tribe had no contact with any Europeans their name is not known but their artifacts and structures are still visible inside the park today including two mounds.
