Historic SiteA Caddo mound and village dating between approximately 1450 & 1650 A.D. were located northeast of Belcher. The mound consisted of a series of platforms that contained houses or meeting places for the village leaders. The houses were burned periodically and capped with earth. The site probably was occupied when the DeSoto Expedition crossed Caddo lands in 1542.
