A Whitewater World - History of the Whitewater River Valley and Whitewater State Park
A live theater performance held at the park in the summer of 2019. It gives a great overview of the history of settlement in the blufflands region and how the relationship between humans and the landscape changed over time from the Dakota and earlier people who lived there to the settlers and later farmers and families of the area. It is a great resource!
