Putnam County, Ohio, lies in the "Black Swamp" area of northwestern Ohio and was formed from Old Indian Territory in 1820. The land is level and wet but very fertile when drained. Between 1834 and 1850 a large Swiss Mennonite settlement sprang up in southeastern Putnam and northeastern Allen counties. The struggling Blanchard Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church) was founded in the west-central part of the county in 1836.
