Spend The Day Exploring These Ancient Earth Mounds In Louisiana

Tucked away in the northeastern corner of the state lies one of the biggest mysteries in Louisiana, perhaps even the country. The 402 acres that make up the Poverty Point State Historic Site are the largest and most complex Late Archaic earthwork occupation and ceremonial site that’s ever been discovered in North America, and it’s worth a visit.

Poverty Point is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission begins at $4.00, with discounted rates available for seniors and kids. For more information, visit their website. If you’ve ever visited Poverty Point, let us know about your experience in the comments below!
