History
Revolutionary war veteran Captain John Crandall settled on the ridge above the Ohio River, and then called Pleasant Ridge, shortly after the 1795 Treaty of Greenville between General Anthony Wayne and the various Amerindian tribes of current Indiana and Ohio. George Rabb, another early settler, also established himself on the Ridge. Stephen Ludlow platted Greendale, Indiana in 1852 on a high ridge that overlooks the Ohio River Valley. It is adjacent to Lawrenceburg, Indiana that it also overlooks. Greendale has four public parks. Dearborn Trail begins at the intersection of East William and High Street in Greendale.
