KB in Iowa BS: genealogy of towns (22) RE: BS: genealogy of towns 20 Apr 11

Were not the local Native Americans mound builders around there? mg

It is now called the Woodland Culture but yes, that is who built the mounds. There is a set called 'Marching Bears' along with several birds and any number of conical and linear mounds. I just checked the officail website and it says there are over 200 mounds in the park.

From ground level some of the bears are difficult to see as bears but I thought no less of them for it. The oldest mounds are large conical ones right on the edge of the bluff overlooking the Mississippi. They were magnificent. It was easy to find views that showed little if any modern human activity.

On a different note - there is an American Football player named Jared DeVries from Aplington, Iowa which looks to be about 75 miles southwest of Clermont. He played college ball at the U of Iowa and is now in the NFL playing for the Detroit Lions. Maybe a long lost cousin.
