1. White Feather's Town Marker
Inscription.  The Shawnee chief Na-Wa-Ba-She-Ka or White Feather resided here- in the town which was located on both sides of the Auglaize River. A North- South trail paralleled the river and ran through the town on the east bank. The same trail went through an Indian field, considered old in 1832, which lay across the river from present Buckland.

Buckland, platted in 1872, was originally called White Feather because of the proximity to the Indian town. On May 14, 1891 the name was changed to Buckland. Honoring General Buckland of Fremont, Ohio, one of the promoters of the railroad.
 
Erected 1980 by Auglaize County Historical Society.
