Indian Effigy Mounds Dedication

The mounds were built by what is referred to now as the “Effigy Mound culture.”  Remnants of their villages have been found south and southeast of Smith Park. The mounds once stretched from this location, westward along Lake Winnebago to Fifth Street in Neenah.
More than twenty mounds had been visible on Doty Island at the end of the 19th Century.  These three are all that remain.
