Ancient Mounds Trail

The Ghost site consists of 3 earthen mounds. The largest is a platform mound measuring 11 feet tall and 118 by 92 feet at the base. The other 2 are about 1 foot tall and are dome shaped. Decorating pottery from the mounds indicate Indians lived at the site as early as AD 800, but built the mounds later, around AD 1050.Lower PlaqueThis archaeological site is on private property.
