This is a native american mound. Informative signs and you're able to climb to the top. It is the biggest mound I know of near the Natchez Trace.

Take the scenic and peaceful Natchez Trace seven miles out of town and take in this amazing manmade Indian ceremonial site. You'll be amazed at the size and complexity of the mound.

This is an attraction on the Natchez Trace Parkway and is one of the largest Indian mounds in the USA.
If you are driving the Parkway make the little detour and visit.

Visited this when driving the Natchez Trace. Site of old Indian city formed by mounds built to rise above the terrain. Used to hold ceremonies and celebrations as well as games.
