Galloway Place Mound, also known as Hodgkins Place Mound, is a small solitary conical mound on the eastern edge of Maçon Ridge. It’s 10 feet tall, 80 feet in diameter, and is well preserved. Soil analysis and a radiocarbon date indicate that it may date to 400 BC to AD 20 (Tchefuncte to Marksville periods). Artifacts found nearby include pottery, beads, and projectile points, as well as cooking ball fragments similar to those found at nearby Poverty Point (1700–1000 BC), which may indicate that people were living on the site during that period.
