В течение года компания выпустила акции и собрала достаточно средств для приобретения участка земли в районе р. Огайо [Ohio River]. Часть земель была выделена ей для поселенцев Конгрессом бесплатно. В общей сложности компания приобрела более 4,8 тыс. кв. км земли на юго-востоке современного штата Огайо и в 1788 основала здесь первое поселение Мариетта [Marietta]
