Guyasuta ("Crosses Standing in a Row), a leader of the Seneca Tribe whose hunting ground included the Sharpsburg area, served as George Washington's guide during a 1753 survey of the point. He later represented his people in negotiations with the British settlers. During his later years, he settled in the area now known as Guyasuta Reservation and was probably buried in the area now occupied by the north end of the Highland Park Bridge.
