Resorts operating before the turn of the century included Tremont and the Mineral Springs Spa and Racetrack, the latter located near the present Worthington Steel plant.
Wolcott clearly states he was granting a to establish a trading post, which suggests that no trading post existed at Tassinong until d trade allowed for the control the goods that Native Americans could obtain, especially guns, gunpowder, and lead. Government-mandated licensing also resulted in monopolistic trade, which increased prices and, consequently, tax revenue for the government. The British had a nearly identical licensing system e.
If a French or British trading post indeed existed at Tassinong, especially as a link in a chain of trading posts between Quebec and New Orleans, then one would expect that there is evidence naming those traders granted a to trade there. Control of monopolistic trade in furs to maximize government licensing and tax revenue required a purposeful partitioning and policing of the geographic market, which has been very well documented in the lake states.
Both Tipton and Wolcott were employed by the United States government as Indian Agents at the time their letters were written. The letters appear to imply that Tassinong was already an established location when Wolcott d Bourassa, Chabert, Cicott, and Harsen to trade there. There is also a hint that und traders may have been operating in the Kankakee River region prior to The mention of George Cicott as a d trader at Tassinong is rather interesting since he was a French Canadian like Joseph Bailly who established a residence with his Potawatomis wife in Jefferson Township, Cass County, Indiana, at some time prior to where he traded with the Indians.
Cicott died in or Postulating that Tassinong may have existed as a trading post in the late s is not completely unwarranted given other information that is not directly connected to Tassinong.

If Europeans were in the vicinity of Cedar Lake during the late s, then it would be unwise to state unequivocally that Tassinong was not a trading post at that time. Examination of cemetery indices and Find A Grave records reveal that no individual with the surname of Hall has been enumerated as being buried in Porter County innor is their an enumerated burial for a Hager in Collectively, these death notices suggest that a small burial ground in Tassinong indeed existed and that its location has been lost to history for some time.
Bengaul Tassinong was briefly known by the name of Bengaul, which was occasionally spelled as Bengal. The use of this place name is believed to have been quite brief and references to the name are scant. Redfield and Logan's gazetteer of Indiana lists the community of 'Bengaul' located in Porter County.
Excellent work with sources! Another similar story has to do with the naming of Marquette Park in Gary, and the supposed "find" of a chalice, that found it's way into History of the Calumet Region Another fable I suspect.
I just did a bit of research on Haskell, Clinton Twp. s Home.

Source: Andreas, It is unknown what sources of information Vandermaelen used in producing his map, but they may have predated since, as noted above, a temporary American trading post had been established at Tassinong during that year. Vandermaelen's map is interesting in that it also exhibits the extensiveness of the swamp north of the Kankakee River in Indiana, which he labeled Kankakee Pond.
