Name derived from the hollow stemmed shrub
Spiraea alba which grows profusely along Big
and Little Pipestem creeks. The first white
man to see Pipestem was Christopher Gist,
1750, while exploring for the Ohio Land
Company. Shawnee Indians camped near this
site in 1774. They used the hollow stemmed
shrub, as later did the white settlers, for
pipestems. A beautiful, fully equipped State
Park is located at the site.
