Ancient Mounds Trail

Sundown has 3 mounds that form
an equilateral triangle. Two of
the mounds are platform shaped
and one is dome shaped. The
largest measures 11 feet tall,
while the other two are less
than 8 feet tall. Decorated
pottery found in a possible
village area suggests Indians
built the mounds around AD 700.Lower PlaqueThis archaeological site is on private property. Please view the site from the highway right-of-way.NO TRESPASSING
