Mounds of Baraboo, Wisconsin Dells and Devil's Lake Area
My name is                               and I tried to collect as much information as possible on this site about Native American mounds in Wisconsin. The state was the center of the prehistoric culture, called Woodland, that built the mounds. Consequently, Wisconsin had the largest number of mounds built of any state in the nation and has the largest number of them saved from destruction and preserved on public or private lands. Most of the mounds accessible to a general public are on this site, with possibly few more I didn't discover. In the future I'll add some illustrations and information from my extensive collection of "Wisconsin Archeologist" journal.

The site is devoted to Native American structures commonly called Indian Mounds

Hugh Highsmith, Fort Atkinson businessman and landowner, invested a lot of time and money into protecting the mounds of this area. He authored a book called The Mounds of Koshkonong & Rock River.

Wisconsin Burial Sites Preservation Law (Wisconsin Statutes 157.70) affords Indian Mounds preservation from
destruction, but nothing affords them preservation from neglect. I urge everyone reading these pages to look around
and see if any mounds in your area are overgrown with vegetation, have pedestrian traffic over them or outright damage
by vandals and/or animals. If so, please contact your local officials in charge of particular park or other public property
and ask them to take care of the problem. The mounds are everybody's heritage and we have to pool our resources
and combine our efforts to save them!
