17,000 years of continuous human habitation. This is how the United States National Park Service summed up the historical and cultural role of Ocmulgee National Monument, a Native American prehistoric settlement.

Located in Macon, Georgia, the Ocmulgee National Monument depicts the early life, culture and tradition of Southeastern Native Americans. The park contains traces of this prehistoric civilization, including thousand-year old earth mounds, such as the famed Great Temple mound, burial mounds and other ceremonial earthworks. These primitive structures reflect the engineering skills of the Mississippian people.

The Ocmulgee visitor center serves as a small museum displaying various artifacts such as tools and weapons used by the early settlers.
