The Madisonville site is the largest and most thoroughly studied
village of the late Fort Ancient culture (AD 1450-1670). Artifacts
were so abundant here that local residents called this site the "pottery field." Between 1879 and 1911, a generation of Harvard archaeologists trained at this site. Dr. Charles Metz, assisted by Harvard University's Frederic Ward Putnam, excavated the remains of
numerous houses, storage pits, and burials. The presence of glass
beads and bits from iron kettles indicates these villagers may
have been among the first native Ohioans to learn of the coming
of Europeans to America. Mariemont street names Cachepot, Midden, Flintpoint, and Hammerstone, are reminders of these earlier residents. The pavilion was designed by the noted town planner John Nolen in 1921, but not constructed and dedicated
until 2001
