Text:

A large Indian mound complex built about A.D. 200-600 is the centerpiece of Kolomoki Mounds State Park. The largest mound is 325 feet long, 200 feet wide and 57 feet high. This ceremonial area was at the eastern end of a large cleared ceremonial area with two mounds in the center axis and several more along the southern edge. One excavated mound is the primary exhibit of the Kolomoki Archaeological Museum.
