Traveling Exhibit

Life in LaCrosse 500 Years Ago

A three panel exhibit explores aspects of community life in this Native American village occupied around A.D. 1400. The remains of seven longhouses, discovered and excavated for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation by the Museum Archaeology Program, provided clues to the complex and fascinating social life of the people who lived in them.
