Overview:

Gorgeous Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Park is one of two archaeological parks in Tennessee. It was created to protect the unique prehistoric remains of the Pinson Mounds. Prehistoric Native American tribes built earthen mounds for ceremonial purposes. The Pinson Mounds are the largest Middle Woodland period mound group in the United States. They can be dated to about 1-500 A.D. Within the 1,200-acre park are 15 incredible earthen mounds, a peculiar geometric enclosure, habitation areas, and other fascinating earthworks. Visitors can admire these fascinating features and picnic on one of the 24 picnic areas that are scattered throughout the park, each equipped with a table and grill. Archeologists usually conduct fieldwork on these special Mounds during the summer, and visitors are welcomed to watch. Pinson Mounds is a superb historic Landmark that visitors of all ages can appreciate.
