Bronze Horse Statue
According to legend, Col. Daniel Rouzer lived in Tippecanoe and rode his horse to battle in the civil war. They both survived and rode it back home. When the horse passed away, he had it buried. Apparently, he was so close to his horse, Rouzer had a special clause placed in his will: nothing was ever to cover the horse grave. That clause has held til this day!
