AAA Editor Notes

SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park is off I-75 exit 51, 1 mi. w. on Edwin C. Moses Blvd., then 1 mi. s. to 2301 W. River Rd. More than 800 years ago a group of early Native American farmers, known as the Fort Ancient Indians, developed a complex system of charting time based on observations of the sun's position. SunWatch is a reconstruction at the site of one of their villages. Visitors can explore the rebuilt houses and gardens and learn about the way of life of Fort Ancient Indians. Special events are held throughout the year; phone ahead for schedules.
