Indigenous Cultures Along Alum Creek

As early as 1 AD, human life is known to have existed along Alum Creek, as evidenced by a prehistoric Adena Mound found here. Currently on display at the Historical Society are Adena artifacts from the mound unearthed by Mr. McCalla on his farm in 1880 – in the area that is now Wolfe Park.

Other historic indigenous peoples lived and hunted in the area between 1650 and 1795 when the Treaty of Greenville forced them to the north.
