Albany Mounds

One of the most important archaeological sites in Illinois, the 205 acre Albany Mounds State Historic Site contains evidence of continuous human occupation over the last 10,000 years. The mounds themselves date from the Middle Woodland (Hopewell) period (200 BCE-CE 300), older than either the Cahokia or Dickson Mounds of the Mississippian period. Of the original 96 mounds, 39 remain in good condition.
