Angel Mounds State Historic Site was the home to Native Americans, whom archaeologists call Mississippians, from as early as A.D. 1000 to as late as A.D. 1450. The term “Mississippian” refers to an Indian culture, or way of life, which developed in the Mississippi River Valley about A.D. 800 and spread, with regional variations, across the southeastern United States to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. These tribes left behind very little information about themselves, yet the knowledge and artifacts that have been found are preserved in high quality museum exhibits and the large mound structures themselves. Walking trails, educational programs and exhibits are featured at this historic site.
