Historic or Prehistoric Place, Historic Site or Trail
Brad Wiegmann

Oakville Indian Mounds Park and Museum preserves, protects, and presents artifacts dating as far back as 10,000 B.C. and ancient geological evidence of the settlement and evolution of the people of this region of Alabama. Creek (Muskogee), Yuchi (Uchean), Shawnee (Algonquin), Chickasaw (Muskogee), and Cherokee (Iroquoian) Indians were the five historic tribes to live in the Oakville area.

Rising 27 feet high, this is the largest woodland mound in Alabama with a base covering 1.8 acres and a flat top of over one acre. The mound is estimated to have been built during the Woodland Period which covered a time span from 1,000 B.C. to 1,000 A.D.
