This is another place where a public road crosses the south boundary of Beaver’s Reserve. This crossing is on Meridian Road, just east of the Washington Road crossing shown in the previous post. The line of trees on the right of the photo lies on the boundary. The photo also shows a typical lawn in [...]
This photo is another look at a piece of the boundary of Beaver’s Reserve, near Columbia City, Indiana. Beaver’s Reserve was established by Article 2 of the 1826 Treaty of Mississinewa, a treaty made with many of the Miami Indians of Indiana.
