Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
It wasn’t terribly long ago that Native Americans roamed what is now called Indiana. There are several interesting destinations around the state where you can catch a glimpse of a time and people that once was, but some tend to get more foot traffic than others. The Pioneer Mothers Memorial Forest Trail is a lesser-trekked, short, and sweet hike that leads to some intriguing Indian ruins in Indiana from a time long past, and it’s family-friendly, too.
This is probably one of the best of the best when it comes to finding Native American ruins in Indiana. It seems to check all the boxes: beautiful, interesting, and ancient. Even if archaeology isn’t quite your thing, there’s no way you won’t be ultra-fascinated by this peek into the past.
