Ocmulgee National Monument – Macon, GA

Another day I went to see the Ocmulgee National Monument. Here, the Creek Indians once made their home hundreds of years ago. They used earthen mounds for their earth lodge where it is believed meetings were held, for their temple (no structure on top now)which is still holy ground to Indians today, and for their funeral services. Under another mound furrowed rows were found possibly corn rows.

The museum houses many artifacts and tools from the site and some evidence of their culture. There may not be a lot here to look at but it was still interesting to go in the earth lodge and see the seats built into an earthen shelf that runs around the outer edge of the room, the fire pit, and what actually looks like a stage. The entrance is very small so be sure to hunch down.
