Lenawee County

By John J. Adam, February 7th, 1878.

It was generally spoken of by the early settlers as the Indian dancing ground—some thought that it might be the burial place of some chief; but this was all a matter of mere conjecture or surmise. The only other relics of the red race found in Lenawee county or the adjacent county, so far as I know, are some flint arrow-heads or other small articles, and some scattered human bones, plowed or dug up in the fields and highways, and an occasional patch of corn ground or garden bed, or some small mounds ; but nothing that could be considered as the work of the pre-historic race of the " Mound-builders," who have left to the south and west of this state so many large works of undoubted antiquity, as well as evident proofs that the copper mines of our upper peninsula had been worked by them. It is well known to all the old settlers of the county that, from the time of the first laying out and platting of the village of Adrian, there grew up quite a strife between it and Tecumseh for the final location of the county seat.
