“mounds of fun!”
Mounds State Park, located off I-69 east of Anderson, features 10 unique earthworks built by prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the Great Mound, is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys indicate the mounds were used as gathering places for religious ceremonies, from where astronomical alignments could be viewed.Be sure to visit our new interpretive center, which includes a wildlife viewing room, animal displays, interactive games and more. Hours are 11 am – 4 pm daily from November to March and 9 am to 5 pm daily. Also, take a tour of the newly-restored Historic Bronnenberg House which highlights this 1800’s family and their stewardship of the mounds – open weekends from May through September.
If you like Indian history, hiking, and camping this is a great spot. Check out the artisan well over in the primitive camping field. (Field is also perfect for capture the flag!)
