Effigy Mounds National Monument





The Park:

Effigy Mounds National Monument is located in northeast Iowa along the Mississippi River. The 2,526 acre monument was established in 1949 to protect earthen burial mounds that were built from 800 to 2500 years ago. The mounds are in a variety of shapes including effigy mounds which are in the form of birds of prey and bears. The monument’s landscape is being restored to approximate the ecological conditions that existed during the time of the moundbuilders.
