  • Modoc's Market

    A popular local coffee house and espresso bar with a past. In 1942 America’s most famous elephant broke free from the circus in town, ending up on this spot, where she smelled fresh-roasted peanuts. Her name? Modoc, of course.

  • Paradise Spring
    Historical Park

    In 1826 more than two thousand Potawatomie and Miami Indians and government officials gathered on this site to negotiate agreements that opened northern Indiana and southern Michigan to the white man, as well as paved the way for building a canal through the remaining Indian reservation. Today, historic cabins sprinkle throughout the property, a bucolic place laced with pathways that are popular with walkers, skaters, and bicyclists.
