History: 

Wauseon was first settled along the newly laid Michigan Southern Air Railway in 1853. It was named after the native chief, Wauseon, who once lived in the county. Because of the railroad, the village soon grew larger than the county seat Ottokee, and took over as county seat in 1869.

In 1886, a group of Volga German immigrants from Dönhof settled in Wauseon in northwestern Ohio.
