Long Description:
This marker is located on a boulder, like most of the others in this Park...and reads:

"The last Native
Americans in this area
were of the Prairie Band
of Potawatomi. In early
years they fought on the
side of the French and
British. In later years,
under Chief Shabonna,
they were friends to our
settlers. In 1833 they
signed a treaty giving
up all of these lands.
By 1841, they were gone.
