Everyone should see this and learn the history behind this landmark. This is very unusual for the location. An unexpected walk in history.

This capital-city suburb is basically a drab industrial zone with a few strip malls and other businesses mixed in. The Indian Mound on US 60 in the east end of town adds a nice aesthetic touch to South Charleston. It's hard to believe but true that many bodies were buried in the mound; it's a relic of the ancient history... More

Great information hosts lots of local festivals. Kids love to climb the mound and look out from the top. Nice part of the South Charleston Downtown area. Very close to lots of shops and restaurants.

This is a big historic spot in a little part of the city. The restaurants around it are pretty good and the parking is easily accessible. Read the historic markers and soak in the meaning--- It won't take long!

I have always been at awe of this Indian mound being in the middle of a shopping area. It is well kept and very pretty. A great educational piece for all ages and at no cost. Love how it has been preserved and respected.

unique and interesting as you read the history and climb the mound. Interestingly surrounded by the small town atmosphere. A public gathering place, but is not well lit at night.

Very interesting site to visit and read the history of. Love that it sits in the middle of the town and everyone works around the area and it has a little sitting area to reflect and just sit and enjoy.
