Join the Charles E. Brown Chapter of the Wisconsin Archeological Society, as Ryan Howell presents the results of recent research into the archaeology and history of Prairie du Chien, one of Wisconsin's oldest continually-inhabited communities. During its history, the village was a neutral ground where American Indian, French, Spanish, British, African American, and Yankee peoples mingled and traded in relative peace.
