Note: Mr. Poole’s maps show that travelers following
Kellogg’s Trail in 1826 would have traveled north through Buffalo
Township, bypassing Buffalo Grove, and proceeded northwest to the mines
in the Michigan Territory (present day Wisconsin).
The 1830 Trail alignment lies to the west of
Kellogg’s 1825 Trail. In 1831, Isaac Chambers opened his Tavern along
the new 1830 alignment. According to Poole, a connector linked Chamber’s
Tavern to the 1826 Kellogg Trail alignment, the later of which remained
open to travelers going directly to the mines and bypassing Galena.
