History and Mystery: Touring Indian Mounds with Cultural Landscape Legacies

The lower Wisconsin River Valley is home to numerous mound groups, but their locations are not so easy to find. That’s why I attended a tour of four mound groups. The tour was led by Mark Cupp, the president of Cultural Landscape Legacies, Inc., a organization dedicated to the education, protection and preservation of the cultural heritage of indigenous people who left their legacy on the landscape of the upper Midwest.
