This locality, known as Indian Fields, was the site of a large Potawatomi village. The tract included about four square miles. The early white settlers found here fine examples of the famed garden beds. A short distance southwest of this terminal a tribal burial ground was located. Here during the War of 1812 the families of warriors fighting with the British against the Americans were concentrated, and American soldiers are said to have been held as prisoners.
