The Wapello property has been transformed from an agricultural field back into a native short grass prairie filled with native grasses and wildflowers. The site was once home to Woodland and Mississippian Native Americans and was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places due to evidence found there that shows these two cultures meshed and formed a new society.
A new parking lot and kiosk now greet visitors and a series of mowed trails takes them to sites along the Apple River, as well as the remains of a Native American village.
