“the largest & most important archaeological site in northern Mississipp”

Pharr Mounds is the largest and most important archaeological site in northern Mississippi. Eight large dome shaped burial mounds are scattered over an area of 90 acres (100 football fields). These mounds were built and used about 100-1200 A.D. by a tribe of nomadic Indian hunters and gatherers who returned to this site at times to bury their dead with their possessions. Pharr Mounds is a collection of eight burial mounds where tribes buried their dead from 100-1200 C.E. It is now a major archaeological site, where firepits and artefacts have been excavated. So stop for a moment at milepost 286.7 off the Natchez Trace and imagine the lives of the people who left their marks here nearly 2,000 years ago.

No trip along the Natchez Trace is complete without a nod to the Native American history imbued in the trail. Pharr Mounds is a collection of eight burial mounds where tribes buried their dead from 100-1200 C.E. It is now a major archaeological site, where firepits and artefacts have been excavated. So stop for a moment at milepost 286.7 and imagine the lives of the people who left their marks here nearly 2,000 years ago.
