Wittrock Indian Village State Preserve


Wittrock Indian Village State Preserve is a 6-acre area featuring the buried remains of an ancient, fortified village occupied by Indians of the Mill Creek culture between the years 1200 and 1300. It is located on a low terrace of Waterman Creek, a tributary of the Little Sioux River, in O’Brien County. The property area was deeded to the Iowa Conservation Commission in 1937 by the Wittrock family, who plowed around the site for their farm fields, and left the site intact. The site was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark in 1965 and as an archaeological state preserve in 1968.
