Mississippi Mound TrailThere are currently two mounds located at the Beaverdam site, though there may originally have been more. Mound A has eroded over time and is now 11 feet tall. Early 20th-century accounts describe it as rectangular in shape with a two-tiered platform. Mound B is now about two feet in height. Excavations in 2013 indicate that Mound A was built in multiple stages during the Mississippi Period, ca. AD 1200-1600.
