THE OLD MOUND
The hill from which Pilot Mound takes its name is a bedrock ridge streamlined by glacial action. Archaeological excavations in 1908 showed an artificial mound on top of the hill to have been a burial place for late prehistoric Indians. Within recorded time, the hill was a gathering place for buffalo hunters and for Indians who held ceremonial dances there and named it "Little Dance Hill." Today, The Old Mound" is privately owned, however, is surrounded by gravel roads which offer an excellent view of this historical icon.
PILOT MOUND'S MEMORIAL ROSE GARDEN
What was once the Memorial Rose Garden is now a Memorial Wall with a beautifully groomed lawn and flower beds. Names of those who have passed on are still accepted for the wall. Emailing the Chamber of Commerce will put you in touch with the individual in charge of getting that done.
