Pigeon River History

Mongo was founded in year 1832.  

The history of word Mongoquinong comes from the Miami and Pottawatomi Indians who settled in Mongo. Tribes used the Pigeon river as their main source of travel.


Today, we honor the history of Pigeon river and tribes by being good stewards of Pigeon river.
