One of the few effigy mounds left in North America. There were once dozens if not hundreds. All plowed under or buried under our cities save for a few. A reminder of cultures that existed prior to the Great Dying, when the popuation of North America numbered in the millions.

this is interesting. the article also highlights some of the unfortunate beliefs that have built up around the mound; namely the various mystical or alien related theories about its construction. those have got to go, and hopefully this will help
