Editorial reviews from the web (1)

Located 3 mi east of downtown Macon, Ocmulgee is a significant archaeological site. It was occupied for more than 10,000 years; at its peak, between AD 900 and AD 1100, it was populated by the Mississippian peoples. There's a reconstructed earth lodge and displays of pottery, effigies, and jewelry of copper and shells discovered in the burial mound.

A great place! I could easily spend a day here, and really learn what life was like in Macon BEFORE the Europeans arrived. I'll be back here again when I visit this area.
P.S. Kids will love this!

Grass covered mounds are not the most scenic but very historic. Stand on top of the Great Temple Mound and soak up the sun.
