Chief Roundhead's Village


Upon this site, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, stood Chief Roundhead's Wyandot Indian village.  This flourishing agricultural community later gave way to white settlement and Hardin County's first town was laid out here in 1832.  

Roundhead, or Stiahta, was celebrated for his capture of General James Winchester during the War of 1812.  Roundhead is believed to be buried in this vicinity.
