This Just In! Cahokia Mounds Could Become the Newest National Park

Madison County is home to many unique locations and histories. Among them is the ancient and awe-inspiring Cahokia Mounds, the old 2,200 square-acre home of the Mississippians. These mound-building people lived, worked, and worshipped atop the mounds between 1000 and 1400 A.D.; sadly, many of the mounds were plowed over by farmers in the 1800s.
