"Fun with the Family"

This one-hundred-acre site, part of an archaeological dig, was once a Shawnee and Cherokee hunting ground. The re-created Native American village is based on the excavations of the 600-year-old site. Some of the recovered tools and arrowheads are on display. The life of European settlers is portrayed through nineteenth-century weapons, horse-drawn equipment, tools, furniture, and the eight log and two stone buildings on the premises. Hands-on activities include learning basket weaving, corage (making rope), and working with clay. Although Wolf Creek is not as large as some of the better-known living-history museums, younger children may find the size just right for them. Kids will enjoy the opportunity to interact with the museum intepreters to learn about how to tan hides, make pottery, and work with flint.
