LITTLE MAQUOKETA RIVER MOUNDS PRESERVE
Native Americans constructed the mounds between 200 A.D. and 1700 A.D. Some stand four feet high, while others have heights measured in inches. To construct them, an estimated ten thousand bushels of earth were moved into the area. A footpath provides visitor access to the area. (Photo Courtesy: http://dubuque-tour.tripod.com)
