This boulder and plaque represent the origin of WAH-PE-KAH-ME-KUNK, the White River Indian village of the Muncee Clan of the Delaware (Lanape) Indians. Located near the present day Minnetrista Cultural Center in downtown Muncie, this Indian village eventually became the location for the present day City of Muncie.

The Times


SHERIDAN - The Sheridan Historical Society will present a free public program about the origin of Muncie, Indiana as it relates to the presence of the Lenape American Indian village of "Muncee Town", 7 p.m. Aug. 14, in the Community Room of the Sheridan Public Library.

The time period covered will be from the Treaty of Greenville to the Treaties of Saint Mary's.

The program will be presented by Chris Flook, the president of the Delaware County Historical Society and an instructor at Ball State University.

In addition to the historical roots of Muncie, Flook will also talk about a video presentation on this subject that was produced by students in his class.

Each February the Sheridan Historical Society presents the annual Boxley Lecture Series program, which celebrates the founding father of Sheridan by bringing an impersonator of a famous American hero to our community to entertain and educate our residents and students.

The annual Society fund raising dinner in the spring features guest speakers, and periodically throughout the year the Society's monthly meetings feature free programming for the public.

The Sheridan Historical Society offers an annual membership for $20 and a lifetime membership for $110. The Society meets the second Monday of each month, and the museum on Main Street is open 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday.

Especially now the Sheridan Historical Society appreciates your support as we prepare to move into our new building: the old Hippodrome movie house Main Street. If you would like further information about our pending move and how you can help us accomplish it, please come to one of our meetings or stop by the museum. Won't you join us?
