Winterville Mounds

Greenville, Mississippi

One of the best-preserved Native American mounds remaining in the southern United States.  


While little remains of Indian Mounds, those located in Winterville are incredibly unique. The mounds are a stark contrast to the flat Mississippi Delta that they are built on. Mound A, one of the tallest in the country, is over 50 feet high. 

Because of how well the mounds site is preserved, the Winterville Mounds were added to the National Register of Historic Places. However, archaeologists are still puzzled as to whom the mounds belong.

The Winterville Mounds are an essential part of the Mississippi Mounds Trail, which takes the tourists on a journey through the many mounds found in Mississippi.
