Chucalissa [CHUCK- AH- LIZZA] is a Choctaw word for “abandoned house.”
The Chucalissa Archaeological Museum is built on the site of a Mississippian-period (A.D. 900-1600) Native American village. Operated by the University of Memphis, Chucalissa serves as a gateway into understanding the science of archaeology and the interpretation of Native American history. The museum exhibits interpret the prehistory of the Mid-South, and contemporary Southeastern Indian cultures.
