History

Originally, the small community had been known as “Holes’ Station” since about 1797, when Zachariah Hole settled there with his family from Virginia and built a stockade on the west bank of the Miami River opposite from the mouth of Bear Creek. Along with the stockade brought Squatters, Surveying Parties, and other settlers who had taken grants out for them to live in the local cabins until they could build their own ; hence the little community became known as “Hole’s Station”. Meanwhile more settlers poured into the town from all over but mainly from Pennsylvania. The name Miamisburg comes from the words “Miamis” and “burg” just combined together. By 1822 the unincorporated community had become a village and achieved city status about 100 years later.
