Surrounded by some of the most fertile farm land in Missouri, Towosaghy State Historic Site is a former fortified village and civil-ceremonial center for the Mississippian peoples who lived in southern Missouri between A.D. 1000 and A.D. 1400. Visitors to the site can see mounds that speak to the site's past activities and exhibit panels that tell the story of Towosahgy through archaeological excavations.

This site preserves the remains of a once-fortified Indian village which was an important ceremonial center.

Site entry is free.
