|Solomon Shoup's "Daytona Mill"|
Beavercreek is is the largest city in Greene County, Ohio and is the second largest suburb of Dayton behind Kettering. It wasn't always so large but when they put in Interstate 675 it grew exponentially. Today, many Beavercreek residents work at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or it's two newer malls, Fairfield Commons and The Greene Town Center.
One of the early settlers of Beavercreek was Solomon Shoup whose father was George Shoup,a miller from Frederick, MD. Today, Solomon is only remembered as "Shoup Mill Road". Another early settler is Jacob Coy who acquired over 3,000 acres of land in 1801 and provided five generations of Coys in Beavercreek. His second house was moved from Shakertown Road to Phillips Park where it now houses the Beavercreek Wetlands Association. And, in 1859, Peter Tobias built his house on 42 acres. He deeded 1/2 acre to Beavercreek Township schools and a one-room schoolhouse was built and used on this property until 1916.
