All of the many histories preserved here at Ocmulgee National Monument have one lesson for us that we see time and again ... ALL THINGS ARE CONNECTED ....     This idea reminds us of our personal connections to the natural resource of the planet Earth and all of the people who have worked to create a society back through time.

Ocmulgee National Monument preserves and displays a collection of archaeological artifacts dating back more than 12,000 years. From early Clovis points through colonial bells and a 300 year old sword

The Lamar site contains the only known example of a spiral mound in North America.  This unique 20 ft. tall mound was built and used by Native people from 1350 till the late 1500's.  This mound is accessible during low water levels of the Ocmulgee River with a ranger lead tour several times a year.  Call for reservations to this exciting ranger lead hike.

The Visitor Center contains two rooms of artifacts found during excavations on site. The first exhibition in the rotunda displays artifacts that cover the 12,000 years of human habitation here at the park. The back room contains artifacts that deal more specifically with the group of people who used the mounds 1000 years ago (we call them the Mississippians).
