Chief Menominee & The Trail of Death

In memory of the peaceful Potawatomi chief, Menominee, a statue was erected of him in 1909 in Plymouth, on South Peach Road. It is the only publicly commissioned statue of a Native American in Indiana.

On West 12th Road is a plaque that marks the probable location of Chief Menominee’s village and first chapel. The chapel was discovered in 1827 by a French Catholic Priest. Unfortunately, after the tribe was forced to leave, the village and chapel were destroyed. A replica of the chapel was constructed at the University of Notre Dame, which also marks the beginning point of the Trail of Death. On this trail, over 150 members of the Potawatomi tribe were forced to leave their home and move to a Kansas reservation in 1838. 12380 Peach Rd., Plymouth, IN

14

Potawatomi Wildlife Park

This quiet 317-acre wildlife park preserves important prehistoric and historic sites. Native American Encampments, the Stephen Bennack Potawatomi Village, a portion of the Goshen-Logansport Trail and the Tippecanoe River ford, where early Indiana trails crossed the river, are all located here.

Potawatomi Wildlife Park is officially deemed Indiana’s first “Dark Sky Preserve”. Due to the lack of light pollution, many astronomical societies, schools and individuals come to the park to observe the night sky.

There are many activities available to enjoy at park which include bird watching, kayaking, hiking, fishing, geocaching environmental programs, and more. 16988 State Rd. 331, Tippecanoe

This trail was created to celebrate the history of agriculture, the time-honored tradition of quilting and our passion for Hoosier hospitality.

The self-guided trail connects all six of the communities with four loops, all offering a variety of barn quilts in different colors and sizes. The quilts are painted by community volunteers, with assistance from location owners. Two volunteers, Thom and Connie Kleckner, have painted, designed and built the frames for a majority of the quilts.
