Greenville Treaty event

Sept. 28 at 1 pm a ceremony will be held commemorating the Greenville Treaty Line and Sycamore Tree Dedication. The event will be in the elementary school at 35 Elm St.

Speakers will be

Ken Sowards on the impact the treaty had on our nation

Dr. Steven Littleton on Native American History before the treaty

Greg Shipley on the archaological discoveries on the Fleckenstein Farm 

James Williams on surveyor, Israel Ludlow.

Immediately following, the celebration will move to the Gigandet Farm at 2770 SR 705, the point where the line was marked by a sycamore tree in 1796. The line marked the division between the tribal lands to the north and the settlers to the south.
