The mounds preserved here are considered ceremonial and sacred sites by many Americans, especially the Monument's 12 affiliated American Indian tribes. A visit offers opportunities to contemplate the meanings of the mounds, the peoples who built them and the relationships to their modern descendants. The 2,526 acre Monument includes more than 200 American Indian mounds situated in a natural setting, and located within the one of the most picturesque sections within Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area and along the "Great River Road" of the Mississippi River - a National Scenic Byway.

This is an incredibly scenic trip. Just be careful not to be distracted from driving, cause it's pretty easy, especially in fall when the leaves are changing colors. If you're traveling with your family purchase a park passport. It's a great souvenir and really fun to collect.
