Hauberg Indian Museum
The John Hauberg Museum of Native American Life was opened in the lodge in 1939 with a collection started by Dr. John Hauberg, a Rock Island philanthropist and president of Augustana College. The museum interprets the story of the Sauk and Meskwaki tribes that lived in the area in a village called the Saukenuk. It was considered one of the largest Native American villages in North America. The collection includes winter and summer houses used by the tribes, and dioramas that depict the lives of the people who lived here from 1750-1830. Artifacts include authentic trade goods, jewelry and domestic items as well as the 18 tonne sculpture of Black Hawk, created in 1892 by Welsh sculptor David Richards (1829-1897).
