A Washington County Park
— Town of Farmington, Wisconsin —Lizard Mound Park is one of the best preserved and most diverse prehistoric effigy mound archeological sites in the state. It contains numerous mounds (A.D. 650-1300) in conical, linear, bird, panther, and lizard shapes. Originally known as the Hagner Indian Mounds, the state established the park in 1950, renaming it after the most unique mound in the park. The park was entered into the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1970. Washington County acquired the park which includes a mile-long marked nature trail around the mounds in 1986.
