Prairie outside Town Creek Indian Mound

The tall grasses growing outside the palisade of Town Creek Indian Mound approximate the area's native prairie. When the town was inhabited by Indians of the Pee Dee culture, around the eleventh century, it was probably surrounded by this kind of vegetation. In the background, the major temple sits atop an earthen mound.

Prairie surrounded by woodland. There is a building on a mound in the background. It is sunny and the sky is blue.
