Cahokia has always fascinated me. Why? For starters, it was the most advanced prehistoric civilization north of Mexico and the predominate city of the Mississippian culture. The city was the largest in the United States (even larger than many European metropolitan areas, including London) until the 1780’s, when Philadelphia finally surpassed it in population.

It is amazing to me that I finally touched Cahokia in person. It was such a blessing to be there and to walk amongst the past. What a gift, and to share it with my husband – truly a treasure!

If you are ever in the area and get the chance to go, please do. They have some amazing elements to this living archeological sight. One, in particular, is the interactive AR App that allows you to scan their plaques then use your phone to transport you from the present to pre-history. Very cool!
