Boothe Landing is thought to be the only Tchefuncte-age (500–100 BC) mound on the Trail. It is a single, well-preserved mound on the west side of the Ouachita River. Conical in form, it’s 10 feet tall and about 80 by 60 feet at its base. A 1908 excavation of the mound found human remains, stone points, and other stone artifacts. A village midden, or refuse heap, is about 230 feet north of the mound, and is likely associated with it. The midden is Tchefuncte in age, based on pottery pieces found there. It also has mussel shell and stone artifacts. Archaeologists think that the mound is likely the same age as the midden, but further study may show that the mound is slightly older.
