A Bit Of An Unexpected Natural Wonder, Few People Know There Are Mysterious Native American Burial Mounds Hiding In Tennessee

My name is Chris Dodge and I live right here in the great state of Tennessee. My family and I are full adventurers filled with passion to see the amazing things our state has to offer. We are avid hikers and have explored many different places in Tennessee and beyond but we are always thankful to be living in such a glorious state.
Scattered throughout our state are the remnants of a history that have been lost in time — places where people once lived their lives, had families, and formed communities. North America certainly has a past that predates any of its territories, states, or settlements. Tennessee is home to the Pinson Mounds near Jackson, where huge plots of dirt were built — but for what purpose? As more is discovered, more questions arise… and the story is still unfolding before our very eyes. Better yet, you can explore these mounds yourself.
The allure of the Pison Mounds is its mystery, and its story continues to unravel. Learning more about the people that came before us and used this land is a fascinating journey to go on. Hike in and enjoy these massive structures yourself, walk along the tops of the platform edges, and take footsteps that people thousands of years took before you. Learn more about this interesting place of history by visiting the Pison Mounds State Archaeological Park website.
