Emerald Mound is huge, and occupies eight acres. After seeing so many mounds in the Louisiana/Mississippi area I wasn't expecting to find a mound impressive, but this large mound is definitely worth the stop!

If you're touring the Natchez Trace, this is not a bad place to stop for a little while. However, the history of the mound people needs a lot more explanation. There are two signs at the mound that tell visitors about what the purpose of...More

We stopped by here as we were traveling the Natchez Trail. It is an amazing site to see that the Indians built this by hauling tons of dirt by hand. When you climb to the top and look out it is so beautiful and peaceful!...More

Huge scale of this Amerindian mound is impressive, little signage or information though. Walk to the top of the mound may be out for some with limited mobility.

A definite stop when you are traveling the Natchez Parkway. You will be impressed by the size of it and the area is quite beautiful in general. The information posted there helps to visualize what this looked like when occupied by native Americans
