About The Great Sauk Trail

Many ancient migratory paths of buffalo and other grazing mammals served as the basis of some of our current modern roads. Aboriginal people would often use the paths to hunt these same animals, as well as to travel throughout their territories. Early military expeditions and explorers took advantage of the existing routs to travel in the wilderness. Settlers also used these same paths to travel into the new territories. One of these was the Great Sauk Trail, a transcontinental route that linked the western plains with eastern Canada. The trail passed through LaPorte County connecting later with what became Hudson Lake, LaPorte, Door Village and Westville
