Kolomoki Mounds Apr 27, 2008
Kolomoki Mounds Archaelogical Area is one of the largest prehistoric mound complexes in the southern U.S. There are seven preserved mounds in this area and they were created back between 200 and 900 A.D. depending who you talk to. The area at that time was populated by the Swift Creek and Weeden Island Indians. In the late 1890s the Smithsonian Institution conducted excavations at Kolomoki. In 1964 the site was named a State Historic Landmark. A museum was built on the excavation site of one mound and artifacts from the area were on display there for a small fee. In 1974 someone stole all of those artifacts and only a small portion have been recovered.

Today, the museum is also the ranger station and pay point where you can pay for campsites, picnic shelters, swimming pool and even miniature golf.

Not a whole lot to see and even less information was available.

I have stayed here twice. Great family atmosphere. Plenty to do. There are several other mound complexes in the area. Thanks for bringing back some great memories.

I uesed to want to be an archaelogist when I was younger! I found out there's actually a place in Minnesota where you can pay and go on a dig... a lot of schools around here go on field trips there! I'm going to try and do it sometime soon! =) Thanx for the review!
