Aztalan State Park

1213 S Main St

Aztalan State Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most important  archaeological sites. It showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.

  • Aztalan State Park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • The Aztalan Museum [exit DNR], operated by the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society, Inc., is just north of the park and includes displays, two pioneer church buildings and other structures from the 19th century.

One of the most amazing things in southern Wisconsin. It's a grassy field at first blush, but the signage does a lovely job helping you imagine the city that was there

Historically and archeologically important site. Beautiful location along the Crawfish river. The log walls are an interesting sight. Doing some background reading about the site before visiting helps. There is a plan to put up an Interpretive Center on site.

One of a kind. Wonder if people in the future will observe our comparatively super primitive culture, coming to the last of our places still standing the same way.

Amazing to think there was a time well before the current occupants that this was the site of a highly sophisticated, urbane culture based on environmental preservation, open borders, and religious tolerance.
