The army of Maj. Gen. Arthur camped on the southern margin of Maple Swamp at the headwaters of Twin Creek. One and a half miles west of this site at noon on October 11, 1791 A.D. on account of the marshy condition of the ground it was necessary to delay the advance until the following afternoon when the army veered to the northeast and struck a well worn Indian path leading through the prairie and avoiding the wet places. The army gained about five and a half miles this day and camped on bottom land along a small stream probably near the large spring at the entrance of Wayne Lakes Park. This was the first recorded entrance of a body of white Americans within the confines of Darke County, Ohio. Distance sixty- two miles from Fort Washington (Cincinnati, Ohio.) Tablet furnished by Mrs. Grace M. Katzenberger member Fort Greenville Chapter D.A.R. Boulder donated by Samuel Routzong A.D. 1936
