Weekend Report with Christine

This week our Weekend Report took Christine to Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site in Collinsville, Illinois.

Cahokia Mounds is the perfect stop any time because you can enjoy it both indoors and outdoors. When the weather is nice visitors can enjoy a climb up Monks Mound but while it is colder like it was today you can visit the Interpretive Center to see a movie and learn more about the history of this great historic site.

Other Places to See

Christine also mentions the DeMoulin Museum in Greenville, Illinois. This museum is home to initiation devices and other fun things that are truly one of a kind. Also mentioned is the Greenup Train Depot which features model trains and historic displays about the importance of trains to the area.
