Grand Village of the Kickapoo Park
Grand Village of the Kickapoo Park is a 3 acre park located just north-east of Le Roy that commemorates the original site of the Grand Village of the Kickapoo, a tribe of Native Americans that once spread over a million acres of land here in Illinois. The park was created in 1998 and is now being restored to include a summer house, a long house, traditional gardens, a Spirit Fire, an educational center, a veteran memorial, and the dance circle. Various educational programs are run at the park and an annual powwow is held the first weekend in June. The park is privately owned but always open to the public.
