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

I had been wanting to visit this site for years. This month we were able to go one morning in mid-week. Even though a bus tour and a camp program were going on, we were able to visit the displays and museum at leisure. Though it was typical hot, humid summer weather, several of us walked out to the larger... More

As a teacher, I found this site to be a great place to learn more about Indiana's early people. I was able to use what I learned back in my classroom thanks to the visitor's center with the displays of artifacts and dioramas. It is fascinating to imagine that a large village of people once lived on this land and... More
