Corn has been cultivated in Ohio for approximately 1800 years. It was
known to prehistoric Native American Hopewell peoples (A.D. 100-
500 ) and was grown in large quantities by the later Fort Ancient Indians
(A.D. 1000- 1550). Prehistoric and historic Native Americans combined
planting corn, beans, squash, and gourds in their fields and small
garden plots. Two important varieties of corn were Northern flint corn,
which had 16 to 20 rows of round kernels on a long thin cobb, and Southern
gourdseed corn, which had short stubby ears with up to 32 rows of
kernels. By the mid-1700s, Native Americans in Ohio grew great quantities
of corn, often in large fields. Particularly along the Scioto and Miami
River valleys, it was not uncommon to see thousands of acres of cornfields.
The Wyandot Indians, who were known to have camped on Indian Run
just north of Dublin village, were prominent among the historic Native
American cultivators of corn.
