The Plum Bayou Culture built this unique mound complex over 1,000 years ago. Activities at this ceremonial center may have included games, feasts and other special celebrations. Starting at 4 p.m., visitors can participate in an American Indian tools and weapons demonstration and use weapons similar to the ones used here so long ago. At 5 p.m., the resident archaeologist makes a presentation on how the mounds are arranged to coincide with solar events. Following the presentation, park interpreters lead a guided tour of the mound site to observe the sunset over Mound A.
