The Miamisburg High School Alumni Association is the oldest running high school alumni association in the United States, having held a get-together each year since its inception.
1920: The Miamisburg Mound, one of the two largest conical mounds in eastern North America, becomes a park when Charles F. Kettering of Dayton purchased it from the heirs of John Treon.
Kettering gave the land with its mound to the Ohio Historical Society in 1929. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Once serving as an ancient burial site, the landmark at 900 Mound Ave. is perhaps the most recognizable historic landmark in Miamisburg. The mound, 65 feet tall and 800 feet in circumference, contains 54,000 cubic yards of earth. The mound is visible from several miles away because it stands atop a 100 foot high ridge above the Great Miami River.
Oct. 3, 1920: Miamisburg native Lou Partlow scores what many believe to be the first touchdown in National Football League history as the Dayton Triangles defeat the Columbus Panhandles, 14-0.
Partlow played for the Triangles, a sponsored by three factories founded by Dayton businessmen Edward Deeds and Charles Kettering, after starting in 1914 with the West Carrollton Paper Company team, where he earned the nickname “West Carrollton Battering Ram” due to his training routine which involved deliberately smashing into trees.
