Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site- Collinsville, IL
There is a great visitor center, where they show a very interesting film about the mounds. There are also many displays about the people who lived near and built the mounds.
I did feel that very little was really known about the culture. Obviously, a lot of research has been done, but there are still some mysteries about this group.
Monks Mound is the most impressive mound, and a path has been build to get to the top. It is a workout getting up there! In fact, we saw athletes using the staired path for running up and down for exercise.
