Home to a Indian Burial Site
As well as boat landings, parks and trails, the Winnebago County parks system boasts an additional unique site. The wilds of the Lasley Point Archaeological Site mark the spot where a Native American village once thrived. Between 1200 and 1500 AD its 47.7 acres supported an Oneota Indian village. In the early 1940s, numerous archaeological digs took place in the area uncovering broken bone tools, shells, human bones, copper flakes, charcoal and pottery. The sites of early garden beds and cache pits were also discovered. No additional excavating has been done since the 1940s. However, the area was nominated and accepted for inclusion in the listing of the National Register of Historic Places late in 1979. This unique site was purchased two years later from the Winnebago County Historical Society. Additional history: lasley_point_history.pdf
