Water almost completely surrounds the Great Platform Mound. More than 1,000 years old, this ancient platform mound once provided the base for a Native American home or structure.

A series of small prehistoric Indian mounds can be found along this low ridge at River Landing Park. Normally it is not even noticeable but in minor floods it remains above water level.
