Secrets of Aztalan


Located near Aztalan, Wis. along the Crawfish River, a tributary of the Rock River and part of the Mississippi River watershed, Aztalan State Park encompasses 172 acres, but is best known for the 20-acre reconstructed plaza, made to replicate that which was originally created on the site by the Mississippian period indians who occupied the area between 1,050 and 1,200 A.D. Once a thriving community, Aztalan is thought to be connected to Cahokia, a huge mound city established in 700 A.D. near modern-day St. Louis, Ill.
