We made a quick stop while leaving town because it is an interesting part of the history of the area. Not much to see but it is a beautiful setting!

I like learning some history of the areas we visit. This was very insightful. Not much more other than the plaque placed at the Burial Mound, but it did make me think.

This burial mound is located in a small field at the end of Main St. across from some historical homes on the lake. It was eerie and different and a quaint piece of history from the area.

This is really just a field with signs explaining what was done at the site. Only takes a minute to stop. Interesting.
