historic site

The Ingomar Mounds Trail features a nature trail with interpretive signage showcasing the local flora and fauna. The site is a way station for the Monarch Butterfly and is also a geocaching site. The highlight of the trail is the large Indian mound located in the center of the property. The Ingomar Mounds are believed to have been built roughly 2,000 years ago by people who traveled hundreds of miles to trade with other societies. One of the mounds is about 30 feet high, making it among the largest Indian mounds in the Southeastern United States. The trailhead offers interpretive signage describing the history of the early native americans who inhabited the area when the mounds were built. The Property is owned by the Archaeological Conservancy and is managed jointly with the Union County Heritage Museum.

The mound builder sites are always fascinating. This is a minor site with one mound. Their was a nice atttempt to tell the story, but site and signage needs maintenance. It is a simple walk around the site and a center hike to the mound.

This was not what I was expecting. It was basically just a walk around an open field. The picture made it look shaded but there was nearly no shade. There are some historic signs that tell about the mounds,, but I did not see any mounds nor signs as to exactly where they once were. Also, it was not obvious where the trail started from the parking lot. The trail was not maintained at all, but at least it had been mowed on both sides of the trail. Not a good option for a hot July day....
