Ancient Mounds Trail

Insley once had up to 13 mounds. Only 2 are visible from the road. The closest one is 10½ feet tall and rectangular with a flat top. The mound farther north is 20 feet tall, but was 5 feet taller before fill was removed from its top. Indians built these 2 mounds around AD 900, but people lived here as early as 1500 BC.
