Riverfront history walk provides fascinating view into Prairie du Chien’s history


One service the forts built on St. Feriole Island served was to hold prisoners taken by the military force holding the fort. This pit is where soldiers and Native Americans taken prisoner were held. It is rumored to be the holding place of a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, who some say died in the pit. This incident is believed to have played a role in inciting the Ho-Chunk uprising of 1827.
