Welcome to Maumee
Riverfront oasis with an entrepreneurial spirit
Across the Maumee River from Perrysburg lies the scenic city of Maumee, the oldest permanent settlement in Northwestern Ohio. Recognized as an All-America City by the National Civic League, Maumee exemplifies civic community involvement, town pride, and the quintessential small-town American haven. It harbors a stunning downtown district along the banks of the Maumee River and is just a 20-minute drive south of the thrumming urban center of Toledo.
Overflowing with history, the town was the site of the famous Battle of Fallen Timbers
in 1794. Often referred to as the true “last battle of the American Revolution,” this victory marked the end of the Northwest Indian War between the nascent United States and the Native American tribes in tandem with British forces. Plans for Maumee as a town weren’t laid out until 1817, after which the city became a vibrant center for trade, commerce, and shipping along the river.
Modern-day Maumee has reinvented itself as a mecca for business and is one of the largest business centers in all of Northwest Ohio. As its economy expanded, so did its need for housing, and modern Maumee is a colorful mix of architectural styles throughout the 20th century. However, the majority of houses on the market today are contemporary new builds, whose appealing transitional features and large plots come at price points that average between
$200,000 and $500,000.
