Iliniwek Village State Historic Site

Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette arrived at this site on June 25, 1673. The Illinois peoples were the first American Indians they encountered in what is now Missouri.

A short walking trail crosses the site. The location of an excavated Illinois Indian longhouse is marked to indicate its size. Displays depict the site’s history. A picnic area is available. Call if you would like a tour. The site is managed by Battle of Athens State Historic Site.
