Shaped like a prone bird, the Rock Eagle Mound is a stone effigy. Measuring eight feet high at the breast and consisting entirely of milky quartz rocks, it was probably built about 2,000 years ago by Native Americans. Many believe it was built for religious or ceremonial purposes. Archaeologists associate the mound with the Middle Woodland Period (100-300 A.D.). Some scientists have suggested a possible relationship between the builders of Rock Eagle and the Hopewell Culture, mound builders active in the Great Lakes region and the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys from 200 B.C. - 500 A.D.
