The Nacoochee Indian Mound
This little Indian mound is located on private property near Helen, Georgia in the Northeast Georgia Mountains. Both the marker and the mound can be viewed from the main road but there is a fence around the mound and since it is on private property you can't go to it. I really zoomed in too much because you can't see the actual mound very good in this photo. This is a reconstruction of the mound which was completely excavated in the early 1900's. There is also a legend about the mound if you'd like to read it here. I love the legends of the Native Americans, true or not!
