About the olentangy river
The Olentangy River is a 97-mile long river in central Ohio that runs through Franklin, Delaware, and Marion counties. It was first inhabited by the Adena culture and later by the Shawnee and Wyandot tribes. The river was named by the Wyandot tribe and means "river of the red face paint." The Olentangy River is a tributary of the Scioto River and drains into the Ohio River. There are many dams along the river, including the Delaware Dam and the Hoover Dam, which form reservoirs used for flood control, recreation, and water supply. The river is also used for agriculture, including corn and soybean farming. The Olentangy River is a popular destination for recreational activities, such as fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and biking.
