Congratulations, Dr. Roberts!
We were saddened and shocked to learn that a tornado hit Caddo Mounds State Historic Site yesterday during Caddo Culture Day. From what we understand, many visitors and staff were hospitalized and the tornado destroyed the visitor center, museum, and grass house.
We will share more information with our community as it becomes available.
