about Plains Conservation Center:
Visitors can discover how the physical aspects and limited resources of the prairie shaped the lives of two very different cultures. Replica tipis, artifacts, and a fire ring speak of the semi-nomadic lifestyle of the Cheyenne people of the 1830s. Well's Crossing, a replica of an 1887 sod village, offers all the pioneer comforts: two homesteads, a school house, a blacksmith shop, an heirloom garden and a chicken coop.
Plan your visit around a guided walk, wagon ride, program, or special event. The PCC offers fun and interactive programs for all ages and ability levels; camps are held during summer.
