SunWatch Indian Village & Archaeological Park in Dayton is a partially reconstructed Fort Ancient period American Indian village along the Great Miami River.  Excavations at this 13th-century village exposed a planned, stockaded village with astronomical alignments that were likely occupied for about 20 years. Due to its significance, the site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1990. The interpretive center and reconstructed village include displays discussing the excavation and reconstruction of the site and the lives of the villagers who resided there.  Activities include guided group tours, festivals, overnight programs, and more.
