at Grouseland, which commemorates the bicentennial of the meetings between Shawnee leader, Tecumseh, and then governor of the Indiana Territory, William Henry Harrison, who later served as the 9th President of the United States.
Council at the Grove will feature other storytellers
, as well as music and cultural demonstrations of Native American, pioneer and military life in 1810 Indiana. Visitors can tour various camp fire “stations” and be transported in time.
All events, except tours of Harrison’s mansion, are free and open to the public. Tours will be given of Grouseland throughout the day, including by candlelight during Council at the Grove at regular admission rates ($5 adult, $4 senior, $3 students).
