Built and inhabited around 1000 to 1550 AD by Mississippian Culture Indians, the Etowah Indian Mounds is the most intact site of its sort in the Southeastern US. It is a 54-acre site that shows great evidence of the life in the area more than 500 years ago.
Featuring three chief platform mounds and three lesser mounds, the Etowah Indian mounds is a real majestic sight to behold. The largest measures 63 feet, and is believed to be where the major village structures were built.
The Etowah Indian Mounds is still not thoroughly excavated; so much is still being learned from the site. However, visitors are still allowed to wander and explore the area, and bask into the ancient history it holds.
