Inscription.

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced certain eastern tribes westward into Kansas. In recognition of past acts of friendship by the Wyandots, the Delaware agreed to sell them 36 sections of their holdings. The Delaware also graciously donated 3 additional sections for churches and schools, totaling 24,960 acres.

This monument marks the boundary between the two tribes & commemorates the generosity of the Delaware Nation.
