Florence, AL 35630

Located near the banks of the Tennessee River, the Florence Indian Mound is the Tennessee Valley's largest domiciliary mound.  It is a typical example of the work of the early Native Americans who lived in Alabama before the Cherokee, Chickasaw and Creek nations inhabited this region.

It is a 42 foot high quadrilateral mound with a summit measuring 145 x 94 feet.  Early settlers in the region found steps on the east side and evidence that the mound had been enclosed by a semi-circular earthen wall.

The museum contains Native American artifacts dating back over 10,000 years, arranged in chronological order from Paleo to Historic periods.

Open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm.

Admission Charged.

Adults $2.00
