Logan Elm photograph
Description: The Logan Elm in Pickaway County, Ohio, was the location of a speech on Indian and white relations given by Chief Logan of the Ohio Iroquois in 1774. Originally an ally of white settlers in the Ohio country, Logan began to oppose their settlement after a contingent of Virginia settlers killed 12 members of Logan's family and tribe. At the time the tree died in 1964, it was estimated to be between 200 to 300 years old, and was approximately 24 feet in circumference. In its place, the Ohio History Connection (then the Ohio Historical Society) and Pickaway Country placed a plaque, and, recently, planted a pin oak tree in honor of Chief Logan and the legendary elm tree.
