For centuries this area was used by Indian
tribes as a hunting ground. Vast swamp forests
of elm, ash, beech, pin oak, and maple lay on all
sides. To the east, a large cranberry bog was
covered by water nost of the year. Indian
hunting camps on the headwaters of Sycamore
Creek were the scene of plentiful harvests
both of game and cranberries. These wetlands
produced abundant game after most sections of
the county were settled and farmed. Today,
extensive drainage has changed the area into
productive farland.
