One particular Osage settlement, set on a hilltop near the Osage River, is preserved in the Osage Village State Historic Site. At its height between 1700 and 1775 there were about 200 lodges in the village. Pay a visit to this site and learn about the pottery, tools, and weapons used by the Osage, as well as their farming and fur-trading techniques.
