Great time walking the grounds of the battlefield. Loved the wrought iron fencing and the monument. Visited in fall with colorful leaves. Beautiful and a reminder of past wars and battles that are historic in nature.

Learn about the battle of Tippecanoe and the struggle between the Indians and the whites. Lots of guns to see and a short video explaining the battle. Then you can walk the battlefield and imagine what happened over 200 years ago.
