Inscription.  The last Native Americans in this area were of the Prairie Band of Potawatomi. In early years they fought on the side of 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.
