2000 year old Indian mound

Very cool part of Alabama's history. You can walk up the mound for free. There is a fee for the small museum. The museum is new. We spent about 45 minutes here.

The new Indian Mound Museum is all about the Native People who inhabited the region before the Europeans arrived. They have an extensive collection of artifacts to see. People can park and visit the indian mound without going in the museum. They charge a small admission fee to see the museum. There is a public restroom available separate from the... More

Anytime you are close to any Native American monuments or museum's I always suggest you go. Everyone needs to learn their Native American History

I never knew this was here. I was so happy to find such a living museum of mounds and information about the people that lived there hundreds of years earlier. It was a lovely trip. Beautiful well-maintained grounds. A secret that I was glad to uncover.

Really wanted to see this, but it was closed due to renovations being performed. The ladies at the Florence Tourism Center (located at the entrance to McFarland Park) Informed us that it was currently undergoing renovations.

We were so surprised to find that this mound & museum are practically right in the middle of town. It is a small museum but worth the trip if you like history of this nature. You can also walk up steps to reach the top of the mound if you wish.

We were there today to see the museum. The mound is clearly visible from the street. The gate is paddle locked and the museum is closed. There happened to be a park employee locking-up as we pulled in. We were informed that a new museum building is being built on the site of the old building. The museum will be... More

The Mound is a beautiful place among an industrial area. The history surrounding the Mound amazing. At one time there was a house built on top of it but within a year it was torn down and the boards tossed from the top one by one. The property was deeded to the City of Florence for preservation and protection for... More

We were unable to get into the museum, so review is for outside area only. Historically interesting and the hike to the top of the mound is quite a hike. We will put on our stop back list to visit museum.

A bit difficult to locate, but worth the effort if you're interested in Native American artifacts and information. The mound overlooks the Port of Florence and is tucked away in an industrial area behind the Lauderdale Cty CoOp. The museum is small and is hidden by some shrubbery so we almost missed it. GPS has trouble finding the location, but... More
