History of the Maumee River Basin, 1905
Nine mounds have been determined on the high banks of the Maumee River. Two of these mounds are in Indiana near the Ohio line.
Located in the southeast quarter of Section 9, on the Maumee River, east of Fort Wayne, this mound was primarily made from natural erosion, however, it is possible that it was altered and used as a sepulcher. Recently, IPFW archaeologists removed two skeletons from this mound according to the property owner. The mound was completely obliterated by the archaeologists.
