• Green Lake Burial Mounds

  • Location:

    County Rd 4
    Spicer, MN 56288

A large Indian camp existed on the north shore of Green Lake for well over one hundred years, according to best estimates. The burying ground for that village is located here. It is one of the larger Indian mound complexes in the State of Minnesota.

Natural erosion and agriculture have reduced the mounds until they are now barely visible to the naked eye. Starting at the outlet, they run to the south for over a mile. Starting at the lake shore, they run east for about the same distance. The most visible mounds are located to the east of this marker. No artifacts have been found in the mounds themselves.

Where:  This marker is located 4 miles east of Spicer on County Road 10, then 2.25 miles north on County Road 4.
