CHIEF WAUPACA

POTAWATAMIS

The marker is located Chief Waupaca County Park on northbound State Highway 110 at its intersection with Schoneck Road, Marion, Wisconsin 54950. 

On page 4 of the Wednesday, June 2, 1926, edition of The Sheboygan Press is reported, in a two-sentence paragraph, the unveiling of this monument. Today's park was known then as a "little Indian burial ground" in which Chief Waupaca is buried. The monument remains the "huge granite boulder" placed in 1926, with the plaque intact. F. M. De Vaud, "on whose land the cemetery lies", is identified as the one who contributed the monument.

These markers are also at this location:



 A serene, beautiful location!
