It's safe to say that most of what would become America was home to people as far back as 10,000 BCE, but West Carrolton homes existed as early as 1000 BCE. Indians tried chasing out European settlers in the early 1700s and this continued until 1795 when the Treaty of Greenville gave settlers a safe place to live. Lots of water meant mills and, as early as 1802, there were two gristmills going strong. The land was largely farmland with some businesses, like paper mills, distilleries, a doctor, inns, general stores, coopers and warehouses. As the 20th century opened, manufacturing became big as business owners sought places to build their businesses. West Carrolton was it.
