St. Joseph River

Looking south down the St. Joseph River from the park in Three Rivers. The sign on the tree is a watertrail marker. The rivers here are having historic spots along the river marked with sponsorship from local businesses, most of the markers are only visible to the canoes and kayaks and other recreational boaters on the river. This one says -

Until about 1836 Native Americans camped on the opposite bank, near the Cassoway and Gibson Trading Post.

Site sponsor is the American Electric Power Company.
