Hacklander Site

Hacklander site

Description of Historic Site:  The Hacklander Site represents much of what is known about the Woodland period life in this part of the region.  The site was discovered in the 1960s in a two-year span archaeologist found 20,000 ceramic pot shards, 80,000 stone artifacts including Woodland points, and some scrap materials from the making of stone tools.  Construction of a boat landing by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources at the site has had a major impact on the site.
