Anthony Wayne Peace Council House Open

Want to learn more about the Treaty of Greeneville, about the customs of the Native Americans here 200 years ago, or about the history of a council house? Join a local historian on August 18th from 1-4pm 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 twelve 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 through the west door, with the setting sun.
