Follow the threads of Ohio's heritage along the breathtaking Maumee River
The history of Northwest Ohio is interwoven with threads of myth, legend and folklore that come together along the banks of the Maumee River. Follow them with me on this self guided audio tour as we travel from downtown Toledo to Grand Rapids and back on a journey that shows off the magnificent beauty of the Maumee Valley – and might also reshape your understanding of both the past and present. 

Our tour takes in...

 • Toledo Middlegrounds 
 • Tecumseh's encounter with General Proctor at Fort Miami 
 • Dudley's Massacre 
 • The House of Four Pillars 
 • Roche de Bout 
 • Two ghost towns and a few ghost stories 
 • Nazareth Hall 
 • A story from a soldier at Fort Meigs 
 • Toledo's Gold Coast

There are plenty of delightful places to stop and eat on our 2-hour tour – or, if you prefer, you can pack a basket and enjoy a riverside picnic in one of the many parks we'll come across along the way.
