Long Description:
As a child, when we played in the park one of the things to do was ride our bikes over these mounds. That's before chains were put up to protect them and before anyone really made it clear how important these mounds were to history and their preservation. I know from stories when I was a child that the mounds had been robbed from "grave robbers" long ago.
