Ancient Mounds Trail

Elkhorn is a 10-foot-tall platform mound that is 150 by 100 feet at the base. Construction of the mound began around AD 450. Soil studies indicated that the dirt was added during a second state of construction. Pottery found here suggests that the site was occupied off and on until as late as AD 1100.Lower PlaqueThis archaeological site is on private property.
