Long Description:
Two Omaha earth-hut villages were located along the nearby banks of the Big Sioux River as mapped by archeologist Dr. William H. Over. Omaha huts were made of sod & timber with a round hole in the center, which served as a chimney and let light in. By 1750, wars between the Sioux and the Omaha finally forced the Omaha from the Sioux Falls region.
