Overview


Named after a Prussian officer who aided America during the Revolution, Fort Steuben was constructed in 1786 to protect government surveyors of the Old Northwest Territory. In 1797, Steubenville, one of the earliest settlements in Ohio, was founded and named after the fort. Located on the Ohio River, the town became a hub of transportation, bringing in settlers and industry. By the 20th century, Steubenville had become a center for steel production and coal mining. Important figures President Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, sports commentator “Jimmy the Greek,” and entertainer Dean Martin all are natives of Ohio’s eastern gateway, Steubenville.

Outside Sandclan's camp, lays the Training Hollow, where Apprentice's and Mentor's may train to the best of their ability. The sandy clearing doesn't just provide good spacing for training, but vast undergrowth for prey to hide in. A River cuts along the edge, stepping Stones along the flowing, cool waters. Here, Sandclan Apprentice's will learn to swim, fish, and battle with water. ••Sandclan Territory
