Inscription. On this site in 1833 Henry J. Hyatt established the town of Hyattsville. It consisted of twenty seven lots, north and west of this corner. Early businesses included a post office, tavern, blacksmith shop, two stores and a church. The stagecoach passed through this intersection of Dayton- Troy Road and Springfield- Greenville Road.

The neighboring town of Tippecanoe was platted in 1840 soon establishing a newspaper, a fire department, and numerous businesses. Hyattsville never expanded beyond the original twenty- seven lots. In 1874 Hyattsville merged with Tippecanoe and the two towns were renamed Tippecanoe City.
