CA­HOKIA MOUNDS STATE HIS­TORIC SITE

Where St. Louis - - WHERE NOW -

The in­ter­pre­tive cen­ter at the site of the largest pre-Columbian city north of Mex­ico has won a pres­ti­gious award from the Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion for State and Lo­cal His­tory for its new ex­hibit, Wet­lands and Wa­ter­ways: The Key to Ca­hokia, a 52-foot, life-sized dio­rama that de­picts the im­por­tance of the wa­ter­ways and nat­u­ral re­sources to the suc­cess of the cul­ture that lived here from about AD 1000 – AD 1350 and fea­tures a 21-foot, 700-year old dugout. The ex­hibit is only a small part of the out­stand­ing in­ter­pre­tive cen­ter, which fea­tures su­perb ex­hibits on the his­tory of the cul­ture that flour­ished here and mys­te­ri­ously di­ap­peared. www. ca­hoki­amounds.org. 30 Ramey Dr., near Collinsville, IL. 618.346.5160.
