Roadside Attraction

Prehistoric Indian Burial Pits (closed)

East Stimmel Road
New Cambria, KS 67470

This was quite the controversial tourist attraction!

How would you feel if your ancestor's burial ground were dug up and their remains placed on display? That was the argument made by the Pawnee Nation. In 1989, after years of arguing, the Pawnee won and in 1990 the human remains were reinterred and the site closed.

The burial ground was discovered in 1936 and contains the remains of 151 members of a Pawnee community. The remains have been dated to the 13th century.
