These mounds are in Marion, Grant County, Indiana. The story of the mounds can be found in the book, "History book of Grant County" which was published in 1886.
Most mound and earthwork sites include descriptions from local or county histories. Most of the mounds are thousands of years old.
A mysterious people known as the mound builders have left their indelible mark upon the soil of Indiana. Across the Ohio Valley are geometric earthworks that were constructed using precise units of measurement. The earthworks are perfect specimens of circles, squares, rectangles, octagons and parallel lines; which were based upon solar, lunar or stellar cycles and their calculable durations. They are also very functional on a "day to day" basis as a static computer for determining how the Earth was situated in relation to the greater cosmos.
The mound builders practiced ancestral worship, with much effort expended in housing their honored dead in burial mounds. These earthen heaps represented a conduit between this world and the next. Within the mound, the deceased formed a collective of the dead that were not seen as individuals, but represented a mystified past that could help govern the future.
There are 3 of these mounds at Estates of Serenity Cemetery. You may also read more about these mounds in a book by Fritz Zimmerman entitled, "The Nephilim Chronicles."
