Anthony Wayne Peace Council House open


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 July 16 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,” advised organizers. “The council house will also be open once more this summer on Aug. 13 from 1-3 p.m.”
