- Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park is an important archaeological site as well as a recreational area. Seven earthen mounds within the 1,293 acre park were built during the 12th and 13th centuries by the Swift Creek and Weeden Island Indians. The mounds include Georgia's oldest great temple mound, two burial mounds and four ceremonial mounds. The park's museum features an actual excavated mound, providing an unusual setting for viewing artifacts and a film.
