From our past, comes the future…
Considered by some to be the Golden Age of Angel Mounds, the late 1930s and early 1940s was the time of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a time of new exploration into a past culture that had not been seen by modern eyes. Thanks to the efforts of Eli Lilly and Glenn A. Black, the site was set aside as a preserved piece of Native American culture.
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the purchase of the site in 1938, with the assistance of the Alcoa Foundation, a reconstruction of the original WPA archaeology laboratory will be opened to the public for the first time, and will once again serve as a center of research and education on the property.
