Prehistoric Indian Village

Click to view the photo gallery

Travel 400 years into the past to explore Meadowcroft’s recreated Monongahela Indian Village.

Visitors to the walled village can explore the interior of a wigwam, see carefully recreated prehistoric artifacts, and try their hand at using the atlatl, a type of prehistoric spear thrower. Hands-on opportunities abound for children and adults alike.

Immediately outside the village is a traditional Three Sisters garden as well as a hunting camp filled with furs, hunting tools, and fishing equipment.

The village is based on archaeological evidence from the region.
