It's a historical marker

A very interesting historical marker. One side gives a history of Okemos. The other side is a history of Chief Okemos for whom the town was named. Be sure to read both sides. Located on Okemos Road near the SE corner of Okemos Road and Hamilton Road. Worth stopping to read.
