MAKANDA, IL – Join Mark Motsinger, retired history teacher, as he discusses the mysterious
stone forts of southern Illinois on Saturday, March 12th from 1-2pm at Giant City State Park.
In southern Illinois located on high isolated ridges in the Shawnee Hill country lie 11

stone have been built by an ancient people for reasons we can only theorize.
