There’s A 2,500-Year-Old Cemetery In Downtown South Charleston That Honors West Virginia’s Ancient People

Downtown South Charleston, West Virginia is a hopping place, filled with restaurants, stores, businesses, boutiques, and more… including one very old, very prominent Criel Mound, an Ancient Indian burial site dating all the way back to 500 B.C.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Have you ever visited the Criel Mound, located at 301 7th Avenue? Do you know much of the history of the people who lived in this area of West Virginia over 2,000 years ago? Thanks to a variety of signage at the base of the mound, this is an excellent place to start learning, as is the Delf Norona Museum in Moundsville.

Address: Criel Mound, 301 7th Ave, South Charleston, WV 25303, USA
