Long Description:
White's Station

Here, near the third crossing of Mill Creek, Jacob White, in 1790, built a stockaded settlement consisting of six cabins and a blockhouse. White's Station of one of several walled settlements which guarded the approaches of Cincinnati and Fort Washington. During the Indian wars it was a supply depot and, at times, was manned both by soldiers of the United States and the frontier militia. On October 19, 1793 a party of Indians attacked the station, killing Andrew Goebel (Gobel) and two children of Mrs. Moses Pryor, before being repulsed. It was at this place that Gen. Wayne camped in 1793 on his march to victory at Fallen Timbers.
