This is such a fantastic way to really see Native American culture and understand how they lived in this area. The museum is a bit old now, but it still is very interesting and has lots of fun and intriguing information about all aspects of Native American life. The outdoor area is absolutely beautiful in the spring time, and has... More

The summer camp is so much fun. Kids get to play great games and meet new friends. It is Monday-Friday.

Really appreciate the local historical site. The folks there are working to engage the neighborhood. For several years they have put on a "corn maze"...and we are watching the corn grow even now! Several thousand native Americans lived on these lands. So glad we are preserving this place. Hoping that it is kept as "free" as possible, so lots of... More

I advise you not to go, whoever you are I am sure you are better off looking at photos on the internet. The museum was ok but tiny so there isn't much to comment on. Whatever you do don't go on their "trail" that they indicated. You will walk for miles just to see one hut and a mound and... More

Interpretive Center has good information and exhibits explaining the lifestyle of the prehistoric peoples who inhabited the area. Outside there is a section of the stockade and a wattle and daub structure. You can climb to the top of Mound A and get a good view of the area.

This site helps tell the story of Native American Indians in the area. The mounds are small compared to mounds found in other states such as Ohio. There are several informative plaques in the visitors center that provide information about various cultural practices during the time period.

Upon entering the interpretive center I was quickly met and lay out of facility and grounds introduced to me. The was a $7.00 fee, which I gladly paid as that is how this center funds itself. Lots of information about the Native tribes and then you go out to see the mounds and reconstructed stockade, and round house. The mounds... More
