  • We visited on a late summer afternoon during the week and had a great time. This historical site is off the beaten path, but well worth visiting. The information presented was informative, entertaining, and well laid out. We found the facilities clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and well versed on the site. Leaving the visitors center and entering the actual mound site really gives a feeling of stepping back in time.
  • We really enjoyed our visit here. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable!
  • This is a beautiful and interesting and spiritual place to visit. I enjoyed this place and would recommend visiting here.
  • Very friendly staff and a great place to learn and see history from this area.
  • I for one love historic landmarks. And I haven't been there yet but I'll tell you this...something that historic deserves respect, my visit there, and5 stars from me. BTW... I am fascinated that parts of the village are still in tact including the building on top of the mound and the fences. I will be sure to visit the Indian mound soon.
