One of the area's most famous pioneers played a significant role in the battle of Lake Erie.
His name was Peter Navarre.
On Sunday, tours were given of his original log cabin, which in now located at The Toledo Botanical Gardens.
Navarre's cabin was originally located just east of Toledo, and was later moved to Navarre Park and then the Toledo Zoo.
Peter Navarre has a school, avenue and park named after him in Toledo.
One of his most famous accomplishments happened during the infamous lake battle while he was a scout for General William Henry Harrison.
"For the Battle of Lake Erie, he actually took some additional Kentucky sharpshooters out to Oliver Hazard Perry prior to the battle. He waited through the battle to find out the outcome. He was the scout that brought back the famous message, 'We have met the enemy and they are ours,'" said Navarre historian, Robyn Hage.
Peter Navarre returned to the area where he was a fur trapper.
