Is Indian Mound a Real Burial Ground?
Not available online
TitleIs Indian Mound a Real Burial Ground?
AbstractIn the column "q&a", Dean Hughson answers the question as to whether the Indian mound in the northeast Indian Mound Neighborhood was a real Indian burial ground. After checking with Ann McFerrin of the city's Parks and Recreation Department, his answer to the question is this: "the area where Gladstone and Belmont meet high above the Missouri River probably was an Indian mound originally, but we don't know if it was a burial place or just a handy area to do smoke signals." Article includes a 1937 diagram of the spot and also includes some information on what has happened to the mound over the years.
