Tippecanoe started as a tiny stop on the Miami-Erie Canal in 1840, but instead of stagnating as many early towns on the canal did, it flourished. This was thanks to enterprising and hardworking men and women who took advantage of the modern transportation and then stayed for generations. Numerous businesses, factories, and families have come and gone since the canal was abandoned, but by making the most of every new method of travel and technology, Tippecanoe/Tipp City continues to thrive. The name change came in 1938 because of mail delivery mix-ups with another Ohio town of the same name, but that did not change the fact that its founding people have made Tippecanoe a great place to raise children and build a future. In Tipp City today that tradition continues, as it has always been a place where “people were so busy living their lives that they didn’t know they were living history.”
