Aztalan Day at the Park

Description

In conjunction with the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society annual Aztalan Day festival Sunday July 16, the Friends of Aztalan State Park will host a Aztalan Day at the Park. The park is located on County Highway Q, 1 mile east of Lake Mills and preserves the ancient Native American town of Aztalan occupied by Native people of the Mississippian culture between AD 1050 and 1200. Park events will include a tour of the ancient town at 10:30 a.m. and a program on Increase Lapham at 3 p.m. Increase Lapham, Wisconsin's famous natural scientist, made the first detailed map of Aztalan that was published in his 1855 book Antiquities of Wisconsin. Lapham researcher, Rob Nurre, will appear as Lapham and describe the historic mapping of Aztalan and also discuss the unusual effigy mound sites in the form of human beings such as the famous Man Mound near Baraboo, now a National Historic Landmark. This program will take place at the park shelter located at the second parking lot. Both special events are free, but a daily or annual Wisconsin State Park sticker is needed for each vehicle and these can be purchased at the park.
