So many chiefs and no Indians. Interesting history but nothing about the astronomical significance here

The Trace is one of my favorite places to go. So much history and not an 18 wheeler in sight!!! We decided to visit Emerald Mound and found it to be very peaceful. We accepted the invitation to go to the top and had quite a discussion about Native American culture with our 10 year old grandson. He was so fascinated with the place he asked us to take him back again the next day where we did a little more exploring. Sometimes you just have to stop the world and try to imagine what it was like to live 1000 or more years ago. We have also been to the Cahokia Mound site where the largest mound is located, along with many in Ohio, learning more about the people who came before us.

It's interesting but if you are short on time, it is not a must see. It was good to take my kids too... They could burn off some energy and they were overloaded with southern homes and history at this point.

Emerald Mound is a huge pre-columbian earthen mound located in a wooded, rural area. There are several interpritive signs to help you appreciate the mound. The site is administered by the National Park Service. There are no facilities at this site. Would be nice if there was some sort of museum, or even restrooms, but are none. Lack of facilities is the reason for four stars vs. five.
