The Kolomoki Mounds near Blakely

This state park preserves major earthworks built by indigenous peoples of the Woodland culture more than 1,700 years ago, from 350 B.C. to 600 B.C. This is one of the largest mound complexes in the United States and the largest in Georgia; it includes burial and ceremonial mounds. The siting of the mounds expresses the ancient people's cosmology, as mounds are aligned with the sun at the spring equinox and summer solstice.
