<Old Chelicothe is built in form of a Kentucky station, that is, a parallelogram, or long square; and some of their houses are shingled. A long Council-house extends the whole length of the town, where the King and Chiefs of the nation frequently meet, and consult of all matters of importance, whether of a civil or military nature.> quoting Filson:98. Bushnell comments: <It is quite evident their villages were already assuming the appearance of the near-by settlements of the whites across the Ohio in Kentucky. . . . [The above description] refers to a rectangular inclosure, formed partly of long sheds, the outer walls of which served as the outside of the "station." These would be connected by strong palisades, with one or two gates. Old Chillicothe was of this form, a long shed, extending the length of one side of the inclosure, evidently being the council house. The council house may have been a separate structure within the inclosure, but this appears doubtful. It is to be regretted that more is not known of the appearance of the native villages which stood in the valley of the Ohio long after the clost of the Revolution.> The "Old Chillicothe" of Filson's text was the Chillitothe on the Little Miami.
