One hundred and fifty feet north of this site stood The Old Council Tree known for years by the Indians of the Fox River Valley as such and under whose spreading branches the Indians and Whites held council.

The tree was cut down July 31, 1885, by the Federal Government when making improvements to the Lower Fox River.

In commemoration of the famous old tree, the citizens of Neenah have erected this marker in the year 1934.
