Photographing the "Lost" Earthworks at Mounds State Park in Indiana



Two Earthworks in Mounds State Park are unmarked within the park.

A small circle can still be discerned adjacent to the large henge


“Fig. B is 238 feet south, 30 degrees east of the center of A; is 33 feet across has two gateways; the bank is 2-1/2 feet high, and has no ditch.


There is no evidence of the circle but the outer bank of the henge can still be seen on and adjacent to the trail.

  “The works presented on Plate F are near that last described. A is a plain circle, 150 feet in diameter; it lies in a cultivated field and is being fat obliterated. B, on the same plate, is in a tolerable state of preservation; its longer diameter is 106 feet, and 48 feet across either end and is slightly constricted at the middle; wall about 2 feet high; ditch on the inside 15 feet wide; gateway (C) is 15 feet wide. The part on the east side of the section line lies in the woods, and is very well preserved. On the west side of the fence, the land is cultivated, and the embankment is fast being destroyed. These works, with that on Plate K, are close to the bluff of the river, which is here also composed of glacial drift, and is 75 f

“Fig. B is 238 feet south, 30 degrees east of the center of A; is 33 feet across has two gateways; the bank is 2-1/2 feet high, and has no ditch.
