They also built miles of ridges in rows to form a semi-circle and built their homes on top of the ridges. Unfortunately by the time of white settlement, when the land was being converted to farming, many of the ridges were plowed over. The extent of the site was not known until aerial photos revealed it in the middle of the last century. Because of the weather and time of year, we were the lone visitors but it is well worth a stop.
