Adena Burial mound in Pleasants County, West Virginia
History of Pleasants County, West Virginia,
There is evidence
that at one time a large settlement of the natives existed at the
mouth of Middle Island Creek, on both sides of the stream. Flint
arrow heads and fragments of pottery are still to be found there, the
latter showing such a degree of ornamentation that they might have
been the work of a race anterior to the Indians. This view may be
further maintained by the near existence of a large earth mound on
the Reynolds farm, a mile north, and the discovery of a large stone
pipe, rudely carved in the image of a seated man, on Middle Island,
only a few hundred yards from the site of the village.
The Adena mound is located several miles north of Saint Mary’s, West Virginia
