The History & Geography of Maramech Hill

February 4, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm | $5.00

  • This event has passed.

Maramech Hill is one of the most historic sites in Kendall County, although it may not be historic for the reasons many believe. Long thought to be the site of a climactic 1730 battle between the Fox Indian Tribe and the French and their Native American allies, it now appears the battle did not take place at Maramech Hill. Instead, the hill and its environs were the site of an ancient Indian town, and later, during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, a historic Indian village site is recorded on some of the earliest maps of the region. Geographer and historian Michael Chuinard will explain how the site’s unique geology contributed to and enabled the fascinating events that took place there during its long history. Pre-registration is recommended but walk-in registration at the door is welcome. Hosted by the Oswegoland Heritage Association. $5(R)/(N)
