Long Description:
Marsden is a group of 5 mounds that were once linked by a D-shaped ridge. The largest mound is platform shaped and is 13 feet tall and 150 by 150 feet at the base. The other 4 mounds are only 3 to 5 feet tall. People lived here as early as 1500 BC, but built the mounds between AD1 and AD 1000.
