Winterville Mounds Outside of Greenville, MS

July 2, 2022

After our visit to the Greenville Cypress Preserve (https://retirementrvdream.com/2022/07/01/greenville-cypress-preserve/), we headed to the Winterville Mounds.

The museum was closed due to renovations. It is an interesting building, as it mimics a mound.

There is a picnic area and a long pond at the font of the site.

To get to the mounds, you walk behind the museum and cross a wooden bridge. this picture is looking back at the museum after crossing the bridge.

There is a mown path to the large mound and informational sign placed along the path.

I was disappointed that the signs only made where Mound A was clear. It was not clear what the other mounds were.

At the pavilion at the front of the park, the concrete had a symbol in it.

The field had several dazzles of orange-red dragonflies dashing about. I was unable to get pictures of these dragonflies.

We enjoyed walking around and seeing the site. The bathrooms for the picnic area were open.

  1. I figured you would find the Winterville site and visit! A lot of the mounds here are not marked. Some are on private land, but some are just not publicly identified. I stopped off at Winterville on one of my Delta trips to Greenville to see a student. Somewhere around there, a house is built on top of a mound, and many were plowed over for fields. These were years ago, when that sort of destruction was more common.
