1. Old Indian Trail / Wheeling Pike Marker
Inscription.  Several principal Indian and Pioneer Paths cut across Indiana and Delaware County connecting trading and warrior routes of ancient times. First made by migrating large animals searching for salt, followed by Native Americans for food, trade and war, these connecting paths linked civilizations together and became the early pioneer roads developing America. This "Old Indian Trail" linked "Muncytown" from White River to the town of Wheeling, on the Union City, OH to Peru, IN trail. "Muncytown was joined to Fort Hamilton, OH by the Whitewater Trail through Connersville. Another Path linked Indianapolis to Portland through Muncie.
