This stone marks the site of a former Indian village, occupied after 1743 by a band of Munsee, under Chief Capoose. About 150 feet east of this spot stood a famous apple tree, under which the Indians held their councils. This tree was designated as "The town sign-post of Providence" by the settlers in 1774. It was 13½ feet in circumference when it was blown down in 1885.
