Bottle Creek Indian Mounds
Bottle Creek is one of the more important historic Native American sites in Alabama, second only to Moundville. Bottle Creek was occupied from about 1250 and probably served as the principal political and religious center. Bottle Creek continued to be an important site for local Indians such as the Mobilians, well into the 18th century. The French explorer and founder of Mobile, Jean –Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, is believed to have visited the site in 1702.
Now owned by the state of Alabama, Bottle Creek was declared a National Historic Landmark on March
10, 1995, joining Moundville Archeological Park as the only other Native American site so recognized in the state of Alabama. It is administered by the Alabama Historical Commission.
