Angel Mounds State Historic Site is nationally recognized as one of the best-preserved prehistoric Native American sites in the United States. Featuring a model museum that works to recreate the lives of these indigenous people, Angel Mounds tells the story of the people of the Middle Mississippian culture who inhabited this area from 1000 to 1450 A.D. Twelve earthen mounds, built for ceremonial and residential purposes, are scattered throughout grounds encompassing nearly 100 acres. Trails lead through the grounds for biking and hiking. In the fall, the maze is a popular attraction for families. Special events include a Haunted Corn Maze weekend. Art shows are held throughout the year.
