Mound Cemetary Mound | Mississippi


The Conservancy recently acquired Mound Cemetery Mound, a twenty-foot high conical mound with a small historic cemetery around its base. This mound was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, and a historical maker was erected by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) in 1997. The cemetery was awarded a Certificate of Historical Significance by MDAH in 2001.

According to the National Register of Historic Places nomination form, the mound was built during the Miller II phase (A.D. 1 – 300) of the Middle Woodland Period. The nomination form also states that the mound has had little evidence of looting and is probably very close to its original appearance.
