Kolomoki Mounds Historic Park

Kolomoki MoundsThis historically significant park is the oldest and largest Woodland Indian site in the southeastern United States, occupied by American Indians from 350 to 750 a.d.  The park’s museum is built around an excavated mound, providing an unusual setting for learning who these people were and how they lived. Seven earthen mounds within the park were built by the Swift Creek and Weeden Island Indians. The mounds include Georgia’s oldest great temple mound at 57 feet tall, two burial mounds and four ceremonial mounds. The park’s museum is partially situated inside an excavated mound, providing an unusual setting for viewing artifacts and a film.
