Before Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue, there was a huge city in North America that was so big, it would make New York City look like a small town. This amazing metropolis was located along the Mississippi River and was home to thousands of people. Today, all that remains of this great city are a bunch of grassy hills. These hills are called the Cahokia Mounds and they are located just a short drive from St. Louis, Missouri. The Cahokia Mounds are the remains of the largest pre-Columbian settlement north of Mexico and they served as a vibrant economic hub of the Mississippian culture. So next time you’re in the St. Louis area, be sure to check out the Cahokia Mounds and imagine what it must have been like to live in this amazing city 1,000 years ago.
