Alabama Indigenous Mound TrailThe Bottle Creek site is the second largest mound center in Alabama and it represents the remnants of a large Mississippian Stage civic and ceremonial complex that dominated the Mobile-Tensaw Delta from AD 1250 to 1500. Located in the heart of the Delta approximately twenty miles from here, Bottle Creek included eighteen mounds along with canals and residential areas that covered much of the northern end of Mound Island. The people who built the mounds here left behind artifacts that show a clear cultural connection to the massive mound complex of Moundville to the north and to the peoples of the Lower Mississippi River Valley to the west.
