“large settlement of Mississippian culture”
Museum, park, tours and campsites on the location of the Moundville site, occupied from around A.D. 1000 until A.D. 1450, is a large settlement of Mississippian culture on the Black Warrior River in central Alabama. At the time of Moundville’s heaviest residential population, the community took the form of a three hundred-acre village built on a bluff overlooking the river. The site is said to be haunted with the sounds of drums heard at night.
Wonderful place to visit for a few hours. The remaining mounds are impressive, and the park is improving the steps up Mound B and will be replacing the structure atop it with a more authentic recreation. The museum is amazing- the quality of the artifacts on display is outstanding. Nice coffee shop and gift store. We didn't check out the campground, but its there if you want to camp. The park team has special events planned during the year- check out their website for more info.
