The location of this group, situated on Indian Mound Parkway on the west side of Whitewater, is unusual, but not too uncommon -
away from any body of water. There are 16 mounds altogether, of which 3 are possible mounds (not 100% confirmed).
Mounds are well marked by plaques. Plaque #1 is missing. Plaque #13, which marked the mounds outside of the park's boundaries,
is taken from its original location just and is lying on the ground inside the park. One would wonder if a landowner of that adjacent
property got tired of people treading on his domain to look at the mounds there and decided he had enough of that? That's why I'd like
to emphasize again that it's hard enough for historians and archeologists to work with private landowners to protect the mounds, so
please, if it's on private land - don't go there to look at them; there is plenty to see on federal, state and local lands. And more and more properties containing these artifacts are purchased by governments and Ho-Chunk Nation, so there are more exciting archeological
treasures to see in the future. As of this writing, the movement is afoot to rename the park into Whitewater Mounds Archeological Preserve.
