Full Moon Indian Mound

Indian Mound is the eastern entrance to the Cliff Drive Scenic Byway.  It's located at the intersection of Belmont Avenue and Gladstone Boulevard.   The original mound in the 1800s was only 5 feet above grade.   Amateur archeologists and "others" made digs at the site and came up with animal bones, remnants of cooking stoves and other artifacts.   In the 1930s the Works Progress Administration covered the mound with 30 feet of dirt which has served to protect it.
