Only a few burial houses and a brush fence remained of the ancient village by the year 1903. Iron County engineer Hebert Larson, Sr. convinced the county to buy the property and restore it as a park honoring the area's first inhabitants, the Native Americans. It was dedicated in 1922. Making it one of the first County parks in Michigan.
The park was named Pen-to-ga in honor of chief Edward's (Mush-Quo-No-Ns-Bi) wife, whose name was Biindigeyaasinokwe, shortened to Biindige and mispronounced by the newcomers as Pen-to-ga meaning bullhead.
