Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center
The Long Room is used for various events & also occupied with exhibits. The CPN Cultural Heritage Center is also home to the Bourbannais’ Cabin, built by original Potawatomi settlers. It was the first home built in “Shawneetown” prior to the land run. The Cultural Heritage Center also houses the Potawatomi gift shop which features authentic, local made Native American gifts.
Currently the CHC is closed due to a flood, but it will reopen in summer of 2017. In the meantime, the Potawatomi Gift Shop is still open, and if staff is available, they are willing to give a tour of the exhibits that are complete. Call in advance to schedule.
