Seip Mound State Memorial Things to Do
The mound itself is quite large, measuring 240 feet long, 130 feet wide and 30 feet high, and was constructed by the Hopewell people, who populated the area between 100 BCE to 500 CE. The mound is believed to have been used for burial purposes. Posts in the ground indicate the positions of Hopewell buildings and a small kiva near the parking lot has a few interperative exhibits. A short trail connects the mound and the parking lot/restrooms.Related to:

Fondest memory: A sign instructed people to not sit on the earthworks (pictured here) but no one seemed to pay it any mind. Fortunately they left when I went to take my picture.
