Prehistoric mounds tour in Avoyelles Parish

Posted: Updated:
MARKSVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- It was a beautiful day with great weather in Avoyelles Parish to experience the outdoors.

And, if you were looking for something to do, the prehistoric mounds tour in Marksville is a great way to get outside and get a history lesson.

The tour takes place at a mound site that was an important Native American ceremonial center more than 2000 years ago.

Organizers say the construction of the mounds is an impressive feat.

"The elements of the site were done by the Indians a long long time ago, and they put together a site that's aligned north, south, east and west perfectly with no instruments whatsoever," said Doyle Jennings, the site manager. "It's a perfectly arranged and aligned site."

Guided tours of the mounds are available by appointment.
