Daniel C. Cooper (1773-1818) perhaps more than any other deserves to be called the founder of Dayton. A surveyor with Israel Ludlow, Cooper settled in Dayton in the summer of 1796 and became titular owner of the town when the original proprietors defaulted. He platted the city laying out broad streets "four poles wide" and built most of the early mills. Cooper served as Dayton's first justice of the peace and as a member of the state legislature. He also donated ground for a graveyard, lots for churches, schools and public buildings, as well as the land for this park.
