Theodore Davis Site - NHR

On a prominent natural terrace of Weeping Water Creek, the Davis village, located near the town of Weeping Water, is the most extensively studied community of the Nebraska Phase. This culture flourished along the Missouri River and its tributaries from A.D. 1100-1400 and represents the beginning of a new lifeway for eastern Plains Indians typified by construction of substantial timber-frame, earth-covered dwellings; a sedentary settlement pattern; and increased reliance on domestic plant foods, particularly corn. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
