Still further down the river, on the east side, at the mouth of Breckenridge Creek, is a single mound, which has not been opened except a slight excavation in its side, which developed the customary lumps of charcoal. This point is about four miles north of Ft. Wayne, and is the most southerly point in the county at which mounds and earthworks are known to exist.

The ancient Iroquous burial mound is now partially submerged in the St. Joseph River north of Fort Wayne. Photo from "GThe Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancident Ruins in the Ohio Valley."
