The Native American Burial Site Found In West Virginia Is A Historical Wonder
The Mountain State has a rich Native American history with many families in some way descendants of one Native American society or another. And while our roots will always be entrenched in our home state of West Virginia (created in 1863), our heritage extends back thousands of years. Our state is home to numerous Indian Mounds, including the largest one in the world located in Moundsville (you can read all about that one in this previous article…).
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Want to visit? The next time you’re in South Charleston, head over to Criel Mound and feel the presence of the past. It’s located at 301 7th Ave., South Charleston, WV 25303. Parking is located adjacent to the park. It’s open from dusk ’til dawn.
