Journey to the ancient past to discover 17,000 years of Native American heritage just across the Ocmulgee River from downtown Macon. Enter the continent's only reconstructed Earth Lodge with the original 1,000-year-old floor, climb to the top of the Great Temple Mound, see prehistoric trenches and the site of a Colonial British trading post. Annual events include the Ocmulgee Lantern Light Tours during Macon's Cherry Blossom Festival in the Spring and the Ocmulgee Indian Celebration held every third weekend in September.
