Prehistoric Indian Village
Meadowcroft’s recreated Monongahela Indian Village gives visitors a close look at the everyday lives of 16th century American Indians.
Explore the interior of a wigwam, inspect carefully recreated prehistoric artifacts, and learn about American Indian agriculture. Enjoy the traditional Three Sisters Garden and a hunting camp filled with furs, hunting tools, and fishing equipment.
One of the most popular activities at Meadowcroft’s Indian Village, visitors can try their hand at using an atlatl, a prehistoric spear thrower used by American Indians for hunting fish, waterfowl, and mammals.
