This area of high ground, over 300 acres south of the Eel River, is called "The Island". It was once a principal stronghold of the Miami Indians under Chief Little Turtle. It was a boundary line for lands between the Pottawattomis and Miamis, an indian torture ground and site of an Indian village where the Miami Indians held their summer festivals.

Hard to miss, right on the state road. Not much to see but the marker.
