Scheduled Mound Tours

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the park offers guided mound tours twice a day at Mound City Group visitor center. Tours are every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and begin at 10:00 am and also at 1:00 pm. Tours begin on the back patio and will progress into the mound enclosure. Visitors are welcome to enjoy part of the tour at the patio or the entire tour through the mound area. Average tour times will vary, but you can expect anywhere between 30 minutes to one hour with a Ranger.

If you're visiting with a group, you can request a guided tour of the park should your visit not fall on the days of the regularly scheduled tours. Please call the park a few days in advance to advise us of your visit so that we can confirm there will be sufficient staff on hand to provide the tour.

Mordecai Hopewell

The term "Hopewell" derives from the farm where excavations of an earthwork site (Hopewell Mound Group) occurred in 1891-1892 under the direction of Warren K. Moorehead. The property was owned by a local dry goods merchant and former Confederate Army soldier, Mordecai Cloud Hopewell.
