Indian Mounds of Mississippi was produced by the National
Park Service (NPS), U.S. Department of the Interior, National
Register of Historic Places, Southeast Archeological Center, and
Natchez Trace Parkway, in conjunction with the Historic Preservation
Division of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History,
and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers
(NCSHPO). It was created under the direction of Carol D. Shull,
Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park
Service, Patrick Andrus, Heritage Tourism Director, and Beth L.
Savage, Publications Director. Indian Mounds of Mississippi
is based on the previously published Indian Mounds of Mississippi
brochure, and information in the files of the National Register
of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks collections.
These materials are kept at 800 North Capitol St., Washington,
D.C., and are open to the public from 8:00am to 12:00pm and 1:00pm
to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
The text of this travel itinerary was originally published in
the 1999 brochure, Indian Mounds of Mississippi. The brochure
was created in response to Public Law 103-433 and in cooperation
with federal and state agencies. Keith A. Baca from the Mississippi
Department of Archives and History wrote the text and Virginia
Horak from the Southeast Archeological Center designed and edited
the pamphlet. Erika Martin Seibert, National Register Archeologist,
assembled the map, photographic and written materials from the
original brochure for the electronic travel itinerary. National
Register web production team members included Jeff Joeckel, who
designed the itinerary, Rustin Quaide, and Shannon Bell (all of
NCSHPO). Yen M. Tang (National Council for Preservation Education)
assisted with preparation of the photographs for the web.
