St. Marys

Indians found the St. Marys River to be an essential travel route. By portages of only six miles at high water and 26 at low water, they could travel from Lake Erie to the Gulf of Mexico. Before the construction of Grand Lake St. Marys, which drained about half of the river's watershed area, the river could handle the largest flat-bottom boats.
