This Hike Takes You To A Place Wisconsin’s First Residents Left Behind

One of Wisconsin’s most well-preserved and important ancient settlements sits right alongside modern-day I-94 in Aztalan State Park. This area was settled from the 10th through 13th centuries by a Native American people known to be part of the Mississippian culture. They interacted with other groups all throughout the midwest using rivers and waterways to connect. Discovered in the mid-1800s, this area was placed on the National Historic Register in 1966.

Aztalan State Park is located at N6200 County Rd Q, Jefferson, WI 53549.
