Long Description:
This Indian mound is located right next to a gas station in the middle of town. It is fenced in to help preserve it, and a sign tells a little more about its history:

Pre-Columbian Indian Mound

Indian burial mounds such as this one were once common in the Chetek area. The mounds were built hundreds of years ago before the arrival of Columbus in 1492 by bands of the Ojibwa and Sioux people. This mound may be the last one located in the city of Chetek. There are others North and East of town. Kwik Trip is working with the La Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Nation and the city of Chetek to preserve this mound.
Type: Burial Mounds
