Inscription. By the Treaties at the Maumee Rapids in 1817, and 1818 at St. Mary’s, the Shawnee Indians were given a reservation of ten miles by twelve miles. This being the eastern boundary line. Indian Towns within this area were Blackhoof’s (now St. Johns), Wapaghonetta (now Wapakoneta), where the Council House once stood and White Feather’s Town (now Buckland). In 1832 the Shawnee were removed to the Indian Territory in Kansas.
