Detailed history coming soon to this site.

In brief: The area is a known historical dwelling for Native Americans and many artifacts have been found in the area including arrowheads, stone tools, milling stones, and other common objects.

Workers draining Mountain Pond during a drought in 1911 noticed an unusual-looking log protruding from the bottom. Excavation uncovered a fully-intact pre-revolutionary dugout canoe - one of the best and oldest specimens yet to be found in this region (pictured at left in a Bethel Beacon cover feature).

The potential archaeological significance of Terre Haute is yet another reason for its preservation.
