TRAIL TYPE:
Hiking TrailBarrier Free (ADA) Trail

Walk along the Village Trail and imagine what life was like 500 years ago when this village was inhabited by Native Americans. See what is left of the big mound on which the chief lived, and the extensive moat that was built for defense. Travel to another time period as well, as 100 years ago there was a sawmill, associated town, cemetery and African American school on the grounds. You can visit the cemetery and restored one-room schoolhouse on the Village Trail. Wayside exhibit signs will guide you around and explain each area of the archeological site.
