Menominee placed on National Register

The Chief Menominee Monument was listed to the National Register of Historic Places in December, 2010. The listing is particularly notable due to the rarity in commemorative sites achieving eligibility. The monument and the site at which it is located, was deemed to have considerable importance to the State of Indiana and the nation due to its purpose and origins. Chief Menominee was the peaceful tribe leader to the Potawotomie who refused to sell his lands, but was removed with his tribe on the Trail of Death.

The monument, dedicated in 1909, was the first monument erected to an American Indian. It was also the first commemorative site acknowledging the mistreatment of the American Indian in the nation. We salute the work of Daniel McDonald, Marshall County historian, author, and former state representative, whose unyeilding pressure caused the State of Indiana to fund the monument over 100 years ago.

The photograph is from the rededication of the monument in September, 2009.

When the greatest lender is identified, then send them an application, leaving nothing
to contemplate. In case relating to emergencies, they one of two
borrow from friends or try to push that money for the later.
