     North Leslie, is part of the village of Leslie. At its western edge, along Rice's Creek, Indian mounds cover a tract of 15 or 20 acres. Among the bones unearthed were a human skull, so large that no hats in Leslie could be found to fit it and a thigh bone three inches longer than that of the tallest man in the village. In the vicinity are rectangular earthworks, with entrances at the ends, possible thrown up for defensive purposes by the vanished race of mound builders.
