Beavercreek OH real estate goes back some 10,000 to 12,000 years, when native peoples inhabited the area. Archaeological evidence exists that prove these natives had technology, farming knowledge and communities. That all ended when the first Europeans came into the area from the East, seeking more land. The French, Indians, British and Americans duked it out for what would become the Northwest Territory. Real estate in Beavercreek was settled by two groups of men calling themselves the Ohio Company of Associates. One group began the enterprise in Boston in 1787, but the first was begun by Virginians forty years earlier and which included George Washington's family members. Both groups brought settlers, but the fighting between the Indians, French and British was tough to negotiate. With the almost wholesale exodus of people from the East moving west, it behooved the country to have a road they could travel. The National Road came into being over a period of 27 years, spanning six states, in order to give migrators a better path west.
