Ancient Mounds Trail

McGuffee has as many as 6 mounds on the west bank of the Ouachita River. Several of the mounds are well preserved and visible from the road. A C-shaped earthen ridge encloses the mounds. Radiocarbon dates suggest Indians built these earthworks around AD 600. However, people lived here as early as 1400 BC.Lower PlaqueThis archaeological site is on private property.
