HUDSON PARK MOUND

(Four Lakes Group)

Intersection of Hudson and Lakeland Avenues

 

At the intersection of Lakeland and Hudson Avenues is a long-tailed animal effigy variously referred to as a turtle, a lizard and a panther.  Part of the tail was cut off when Lakeland Avenue was constructed.  This mound was originally part of the same large grouping as the Elmside mounds.  The group probably included the three extant animal effigies, five linear mounds, ten conicals, and twelve bird effigies, one with a reported wingspan of 568 feet.
