Man Mound County Park

Man Mound County Park Baraboo Wisconsin

In 1907 the Sauk County Historical Society in cooperation with the State Archeological Society and Wisconsin Federation of Women’ Clubs purchased the land now known as Man Mound County park just north-east of Baraboo which contains the only man shaped effigy mound in Wisconsin. The thousand-plus year old effigy mound is fairly well-defined and easier to make out than many effigy mounds. The legs of the mound were cut off years ago by the road that passes the park. In one of the images below you can see the position of the legs has been painted onto the road.

Although at bit out-of-the-way, Man Mound County Park is certainly worth the effort for lovers of American history as well as anyone looking for a unique location for a family picnic as well.

More information is available from the Sauk County Historical Society as well.
