Meadville, Pennsylvania

Cussewago was a summer camp for the Allegheny Seneca Indians, who came to hunt, fish and raise crops on the fertile island soil. George Washington had camped overnight on the bluff above the confluence of French and Cussewago Creeks and noted the frames left standing for the summer wigwams the Seneca used at this temporary village site. In 1788 David Mead built his original log cabin home overlooking the summer camp site. Located at Bicentennial Park, at French Street and Mead Avenue in Meadville, PA there stands a replica of the 1788 log double cabin built by David Mead, one side furnished for family and the other side set up as an early school room. There is also an ecological interpretive site, walking trail, picnic shelter, and public restrooms.
