COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Officials at the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site say the interpretive center will be open Thursdays through Sundays this fall, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The remains of the most sophisticated prehistoric native civilization north of Mexico are preserved at Cahokia Mounds, near Collinsville.

The grounds at Cahokia Mounds will remain open daily from dawn to dusk.

Special events this fall include the annual artifact identification day on Sept. 27 at the interpretive center and a hike on Oct. 17.

Reservations are required for both events.

People attending must observe social-distancing guidelines because of the coronavirus pandemic and have a face covering ready if proper physical distance is impossible. Visitors should also have hand sanitizer.

The Cahokia Mounds orientation film “City of the Sun” is available on YouTube.
