Several historical markers are placed at the Mound and on 8/9 17 the city will be celebrating the city's 100th birthday at the mound with cake lemonade and ice cream and later burying a historical marker to be opened 100 years later

This is a trip back to ancient times in an unexpected location. This was excavated by the Smithsonian museum. Everyone should see this at least once.
