Perrysburg is an unincorporated community in Union Township, Miami County, Indiana.

History[edit]

Perrysburg was platted in 1837 by John R. Wilkinson and Matthew Fenimore. Two years later, Perrysburg contained a half a dozen residences, a tavern, a store, a blacksmith shop, and a church. When the Lake Erie and Western Railroad was built in Miami County, it was not extended to Perrysburg, and the town declined.[2]
