One of the largest collections of effigy mounds in the country, numbering 12 to 15 is found within the park. The mounds were built between 800 A.D. and 1200 A.D. The oldest mounds are geometric shapes, and the more recent ones resemble animal shapes ranging in size from 60 to 300 feet. Studies suggest that these mounds were a gathering place for several Midwestern Native American tribes.
