Aztalan Day

In conjunction with the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society annual Aztalan Day festival Sunday July 15, the Friends of Aztalan State Park will host Aztalan Day at the Park at Aztalan State Park. The park is located on County Highway Q, 1 mile east of Lake Mills and preserves the ancient Native American town of Aztalan occupied by Native people of the Mississippian culture between AD 1050 and 1200. Park events will include a tour of the ancient town and a program. Details coming soon.

The temporary visitor center at Aztalan State Park will be open throughout the day. 

This special event is free, but a daily or annual Wisconsin State Park sticker is needed for each vehicle and these can be purchased at the park. For more information, contact Bob Birmingham, Executive Director, Friends of Aztalan State Park at 608-516-3421 or birmi@sbcglobal.net.

The main Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society Aztalan Day events will take place from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society grounds at the corner of Hwy Q and Hwy B. As part of the many activities there Friends of Aztalan State Park board member Kurt Sampson will give a noon presentation on early 20th century Milwaukee Public Museum excavations at Aztalan. This will take place at the “Princess Mound” located behind the old Church, now the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society Museum. The Friends of Aztalan will have a table on the grounds, for information and cool stuff for sale.
