The museum part was small but did have lots of Indian artifacts. To get to the Indian mounds the steps were unstable. Need to be carful going up them. Overall it was ok.
The Village has a keep what you find digging area, the Indian burial mounds and a store. The store has the same or better deals than in town, the burial mounds are well documented and we found a lot m... read more »
They have a lot of certified relics but expensive of course. Nice little gift shop. You could dig for arrowheads and gems but I didn't do that. I think it would be fun for kids. Probably wouldn't go h... read more »
Don't be fooled. Ka-Do-Ha is a sham. Just think about it... do you really think there are any authentic arrowheads left after the same field has been picked over for many years? Their scheme is to highly disappoint your children in the "arrowhead field" then bring you in and talk you into buying a bucket of dirt for 50 - 100 dollars, in which you're guaranteed to have a diamond in the bucket (very small gem and only worth about 5 bucks). When going to the field, they give you a very small plastic bag (3" X 4") to put your artifact finds in. However, the small bag is STILL way too big. The day we were there I saw and spoke to several people that found no more than a couple of small quartz crystals. IF you do find an arrowhead, I would be VERY skeptical since they do sell "reproductions" in the gift center.
This was great for our kids. We founf tons of quartz, several large ones, an arrowhead and a few small pottery pieces. So great for kids to easily find gems. Great after a day at the diamond crater with little result.
I enjoyed the souvenir store and did not even visit the museum or do diamond 'hunting' with the 'staged' buckets. I wish I had also taken pictures of the archaeology pieces for sale! I promised to be back and buy one if I was lucky at the diamond mine - but sadly I never went back! PS: At the end of the road near the entrance, the google GPS told me to turn 'right' instead of turn 'left' into the parking lot.
I haven't seen the museum yet, but i am dying to take a gander at it!... I've recently discovered numerous perfectly rounded hills, all of them are at the same height with couple slightly bigger. Im positive that they are mounds built by most likely the Caddo Indians, Coddan, Mississippian Culture, Kadohadoch, etc. Whatever you prefer. I have no idea what time frame they're from, at this moment, for an Archaeologist has agreed to view them in a gander few months. The Archaeologist & I both would like it to be sooner, however the mounds location at this time of year, is almost completely hidden by thick brush & green forest. Most the land around here was virgin timber until a few years ago they sadly began the logging! One area ,which they basically leved, is where i believe lies A lost or forgotten Confederate cemetery. Which in fact the 1864 Civil war battle of prarie deann came to its final end at Moscow Church just a few miles from my house. There could be some high ranking men like Steel or Marmaduke buried beside they're men in walking distance from my home!!! I know this cause my 80 yr old neighbor Ms Dorthy spoke to me about how they're family owned most of the propriety along the road back to the creek. She remembers stories from her elders about coming across graves of confederate soldiers in which they paid no mind to or gave no recognition for they were not long before then enslaved by those very men. Makes you wonder if it's lost for a good cause, as in they're day, they were very cruel, evil, & in humane ppl. ANYWAYS, once fall arrives and forests trees are naked, we'll be able to clearly see and observe the mounds. Hopefully no excavations will be necessary. Maybe one day Prescott, AR. Terre Rouge Creek will be recognized in History books as another former home of the Caddo Indians
Family fun and the employees are super super sweet
