Second only to Mantua, which was established only a little over a year earlier than Atwater, Atwater is one of the five townships where a settlement was established as early as June 1799. The township was designated in the surveys as Town 1, Range 7, and it belonged to Capt. Caleb Atwater, one of the Western Reserve's founding landowners, along with two or three other townships and sections of townships. Joshua Atwater, his only son, was given this township, but he did not come to live on his property until 1805.
