Prairie Ridge Meadow

About this Location

Take a step back in time and explore the meaning behind Greenville being the Treaty City. The recreated Native American Peace Council House, located at Prairie Ridge meadow across from the Garst Museum, is a modern day reconstruction of the Council House built by General Anthony Wayne during the Treaty of Greene Ville talks in 1795. Its construction was made possible through the efforts of the Treaty of Greene Ville Bicentennial Committee. Open on scheduled weekends from spring through fall.

Locally known as “Buchy’s Pasture,” the meadow below the Council House hosts gatherings and provides a stage for interpreting the area’s rich history. The large oaks that encircle the lower meadow are well over 200 years old and were here to witness that history.

On the hillside near the parking lot is a recreated prairie seeded with 100 varieties of grasses and flowering plants native to Darke County. From this location visitors can access the Council House, Prairie meadow, and a spectacular view of Greenville Creek from the converted railroad trestle. This project was funded by the Cuppock-Hole Trust.

Located on North Broadway, just north of the bridge.
