GREENVILLE — Want to learn more about the Treaty of Greenville, about the customs of the Native Americans here 200 years ago, or about the purpose of the council house?

Join a local historian on Saturday, June 18 from 1-3 p.m. at the Anthony Wayne Peace Council House located at Prairie Ridge Meadow Park across from the Garst Museum to find out about these interests and more. Visitors can expect to see gifts from the 12 tribes who signed the treaty as well as many ceremonial items like a turtle shell representing the earth, a talking stick, and the ceremonial fire pits.

“Please remember, out of respect for the tribes who signed the treaty, enter the council house through the east door, with the rising sun, and exit though the west door, with the setting sun,” said a spokesperson. “The council house will also be open twice more this summer on July 16 and Aug. 13, both from 1-3 p.m.

For questions about this program or any other program offered by the Darke County Parks, please stop by the nature center, call 937-548-0165, or email info@darkecountyparks.org.
