Native American Burial Mounds and Cultural CenterThe area now known as Macon was settled over 17,000 years ago by the Ocmulgee tribes, who formed mounds to be used for burials as well as for rituals and ceremonies. The museum has an extensive range of exhibits as well as a 17 minute documentary that provides background knowledge for your visit. There are dozens of miles of walking trails within the national monument, so give yourself time to explore.
