Cahokia Mounds, Illinoise:

I've visited this place twice now, this last time with Troy on our way to the Jesse Daniel
Littrell Family Reunion
in Wentzville, MO.  As you can see from the pictures it is both massive and beautiful. 

"The remnants of the Mississippian's central city - now known as Cahokia for the Indians who lived
nearby in the late 1600s - are preserved within the 2200-acre tract that is the Cahokia Mounds State
Historic Site. Located just eight miles east of downtown St. Louis, Missouri, near Collinsville, Illinois."

They have tours and a video presentation, a nice gift shop, and a museum which is
informative and well laid out.
