“ceremonial & sacred mounds”
The mounds preserved here are considered ceremonial and sacred sites by many Americans, especially the Monument's 12 affiliated American Indian tribes. A visit offers opportunities to contemplate the meanings of the mounds, the peoples who built them and the relationships to their modern descendants. The 2,526 acre Monument includes more than 200 American Indian mounds situated in a natural setting, and located within the one of the most picturesque sections within Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area and along the "Great River Road" of the Mississippi River - a National Scenic Byway.

Beautiful area. We were there about an hour since we cut our hike short due to bugs. The visitors center is nicely done.
Was a nice trip a lot of mounds go and see both units. The north unit by the visitor center is nice but I really liked the mounds in the south units bigger grouping of them!
