indian Burial Mounds & Forgotten Graveyards


Who will tell your story when you’ve been dead 160 years?

Our research enables the past to meet the present. As with all of our tours Indian Burial Mounds & Forgotten Graveyards offers voice to our pioneers who died over 160 years ago. Hear their stories, the good, the bad, and the ugly. This year round, drive/hike tour is 2 hours long. We visit a large Indian Burial site, three pioneer graveyards and one of the oldest, funtioning cemetaries in Starved Rock Country. This tour is best in fall and winter as the 8,000 year old mounds are most visible. Tours abailable daily!
