This Hidden Trail In Mississippi Leads To A Magnificent Archaeological Treasure

Mississippi is full of cities that bear names with Native American roots. But the state’s Native American ties are much deeper than a few monikers. In fact, Mississippi was once “home to a greater variety of indigenous tribes than any other southeastern state.” Luckily, there are still a few places where you can explore this interesting part of the state’s past – and the Chickasaw Village Site is one of them. The best part is that the site includes a trail with plenty of signage, offering the perfect combination of recreation and education. Take a look:
