MARIETTA TIMES article about the presentation:

The Campus Martius Museum highlights migration in Ohio’s history. The museum is on the site of the first organized American settlement in the Northwest Territory. Founded by the Ohio Company of Associates in 1788, Campus Martius was a fort that served as home for some of the pioneers while they established Marietta. The restored Rufus Putnam house, part of the original fort, is now enclosed within a wing of the museum. Behind the museum is the Ohio Company’s Land Office.

Campus Martius Museum is at the corner of Washington (State Route 7) and Second streets in Marietta, Ohio
