The Seven Pillars of the Mississinewa.....and places to eat in Peru
|Our preservation group's day-trip in Miami County|
The wind and water-shaped formations along the north bank of the Mississinewa River have an ancient past and are considered a sacred site by the Miami Indians. The Pillars are located about three miles east of Peru along the Francis Slocum Trail. This corridor is steeped in Indiana history as well from the time the Miami villages were swept through by troops for removal in 1812. The Battle of Mississinewa was one of the first directives of General William Henry Harrison in the War of 1812.

If milkshakes and chili dogs are more your thing, then try Mr. Weenies on Old 31 north of the downtown......as my buddy can attest.
