Indian cultivated garden beds, partially covered with snow, "South of West over the big area". Now known as the Eulrich Site, a mile from the shore of Lake Winnebago (in Vinland Township, Winnebago County), it was investigated by archaeologists in the mid-1960's and attributed to the Oneota Culture. This culture flourished ca. 1,150 to 1600 A.D. from eastern Wisconsin to the Missouri River, and is thought to be the immediate predecessor to modern tribes. These fields were presumably cultivated by the ancestors of the Ho-Chunk, who had long occupied the vicinity when Europeans arrived in the 17th century.
