Here's Why You Should Visit Angel Mounds Historic Site

You gotta see this!

Angel Mounds is a nearly 600-acre site featuring earthen mounds built by a 1,000 year old Mississippian Society. 

12 mounds, built for ceremonial and residential purposes, are scattered throughout the grounds. 

This site, located right here in the Evansville Region, is like a time capsule that tells the story of the people who inhabited this area from 1000 to 1450 A.D.
