Mounds State Park
4306 Mounds Road

Anderson, IN 46017

Mounds State Park, located off I-69 east of Anderson, features 10 distinct "earthworks" built by a group of prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the "Great Mound", is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys seem to indicate it was used as a gathering place for religious ceremonies.

The Bronnenberg House is considered to be one of the oldest buildings constructed as a dwelling in Madison County. The Nature Center and Park Office are now together in a new building by the main parking lot.

An entrance fee will be charged at this park. Click for information on entrance fees.
