Spanning almost a quarter of a mile, this round earthworks was an amazing construction feat 2,000 years ago.

Great place for taking a walk ==summer or winter. Once you get over the mound, it's all relatively flat so it's easy walking. Lots of very old history too. If it's warm and dry enough, take along a blanket and catch a nap under the...More

Native Americans built this in ancient times as an astronomical device. The circle is quite large and takes up a lot of space in the town. Go on a nice day to see and take a walk.

For those who are interested in viewing a small portion of how intelligent and architecturally wise the early Americans were. This is a small portion of a much larger complex stretching hundreds of miles. There are more sites near by.
