1. Couillardville Occupations Marker
Inscription.  The Couillardville area covers approximately one and one half miles along the Lower Oconto River Valley. The area is filled with archeological sites extending from Paleo-Indian through the Historic Indian occupations. South of this site on the north side of the river were three conical burial mounds ultimately destroyed by agricultural plowing. Indian village sites pre-dating European contact have been found along the river.

In 1851 Jacob Couillard and his wife Susan traveled up the Oconto River and established a store and a community ultimately named after them. The settlement grew to include a school attended by children of settlers and Indians, a church, a store, and a cheese factory. The park is the site of the parsonage associated with the Presbyterian Church.
