Chief Richardville House Becomes National Historic Landmark


The oldest Native American dwelling in the Midwest will officially join a list of National Historic Landmarks in Indiana compiled by the National Park Service.

The Chief Richardville House, which sits on its original site in Waynedale at 5705 Bluffton Road, learned Tuesday that it was approved as an NHL, according to our news partner WANE-TV.
The Chief Richardville House will join the Allen County Courthouse on the list — it received the National Historic Landmark designation in 2003.
Miami Indian Heritage days programs are held at the Chief Richardville House from 1-4 pm on the first Saturday of the month, May through November. Trader Days also takes place at the house in the fall, offering handmade Native American items such as beading, carved wood pieces, corn husk dolls, shields, jewelry, clothing and feather work.
