17,000 Years of Continuous Human Habitation

Welcome to Ocmulgee National Monument. This park is a prehistoric American Indian site.  American Indians first came here during the Paleo-Indian period hunting Ice Age mammals. Many different American Indian cultures occupied this land for thousands of years.  Around 900 CE, the Mississippian Period began. They constructed mounds for their elite, which remain today.
