From Native American settlements, to a nineteenth-century amusement park, to a Native American museum built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Black Hawk State Historic Site has a beautiful story to tell, and beautiful surroundings to explore.
The area, in the Quad Cities, is a wooded, steeply-rolling acre tract bordering the Rock River.
It was first occupied by Native Americans some 12, years ago, and for nearly a century beginning about , the Sauk and Meskwaki Fox tribes made their home at the site. The Sauk formed the village of Saukenuk along the Rock River.
It became the largest Native American settlement in North America, with an estimated population of 6, to 7, people. The park is named after the great Sauk warrior Black Hawk. You can discover the history of these two tribes at John Hauberg Indian Museum inside Watch Tower Lodge, a s-era lodge at the site. Lee Nelson spent five years researching and writing the Black Hawk Journey. Riding horseback to the locations described in the story, and digging through dusty journals were part of the preparation in bringing to life a fascinating, but tragic episode in Utah history.
