Heading through the high winds but between rainstorms, up from the beach toward Greensboro, I saw the sign at Ellerbe for the Town Creek Indian Mound. Of course, I had to check it out.

It was raining when I arrived, but I watched the movie in the visitors center and the rain quit by the time it was over.

The mound is within a walled compound. Entrance is through this gate, wide enough for one person to pass at a time, for security purposes.

The archaeologists have reconstructed buildings on the site, on and around the mound. A ceremonial building atop the mound, a dwelling, a burial hut.
