The Grand Village is a 128-acre site featuring three prehistoric Native American mounds, a reconstructed Natchez Indian house, museum, which is accredited by the American Association of Museums; and a visitors center with gift shop featuring Native American crafts. "These three platform mounds, an adjacent ceremonial plaza and associated habitation areas mark the political and religious capital of the Natchez Indian chiefdom of the late 17th century and early 18th century." Two of the mounds have been excavated and rebuilt to their original sizes and shapes. The third mound has been only partially excavated. "The unexcavated areas of the site will be preserved intact, representing a sort of "time capsule" from the Natchez Indians' past." The Grand Village is host to the annual Natchez Powwow.
