It was sad to see that a train track was built in the 1800's right through the middle of one of the burial mounds. I believe that the Ocmulgee National Monument was worth seeing.

Ocmulgee National Monument is an historic park full of amazing sights. Most people can not believe that this little slice of heaven is right here in Macon.

One of the only enclosed mounds that you can go inside in the entire country! The trails are amazing and the museum is great! Don't recommend trails in the heat. Early or late afternoon is perfect.

See the directions from Go Dawgs,; they are right on the "mounds" if you will. Once you get there give yourself plenty of time to wander. The trails are great and the museum highly informative. You wouldn't just want to... More
