  • History of my country i have never heard before. Park (ranger)? Was really friendly and knowledgeable. He actually told me more about this place in the parking lot than most places would tell you on a paid tour .
  • Winterville Mounds offers visitors a glimpse into the lives of the Native Americans of the Mississippi Period. The warm glow of the setting sun created a mystical atmosphere to this place, & as I stood there and looked at the mound in front of me I could clearly understand why the mounds were highly revered and used as ceremonial mounds. Park like setting, peaceful atmosphere but spacious. Museum on the premises. Plenty of parking.
