History Is Made At Kewaunee, Wisconsin

One of the most historical spots in the northwest, a spot where once stood one of the principle villages of the Potawatomies in which a band of the former were entirely exterminated, a spot where Jean Nicolet first met the natives in 1634, the camping grounds of De Tone, LaSalle, Hennepin, St. Cosme, and many others, as well as the site where Jacques Vieau erected his first trading post in 1795 and where Father Marquette said his First Mass in this section on All Saints Day, November 1, 1674 - that was the spot marked on November 1, 1923, by the history class of Kewaunee High School with an appropriate marker on which was inscribed the following:

FATHER MARQUETTE

Served Holy Mass on This Spot

November 1, 1674

Erected by the History Class, K.H.S., 1923
