Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on September 1, 2012


To children growing up in the Schenk- Atwood neighborhood, the presence of effigy mounds and Indian trails along the lakeshore have always been a source of delight and inspiration for imaginative play.

Amy L. Rosebrough, Wisconsin Historical Society Staff Archaeologist and author, will speak about the pre-history of Southern Wisconsin, Ann Waidelich will add notes specific to Madison’s East Side.

Attendees are welcome to bring artifacts and memories involving our neighborhood’s Native American connections.
