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. PLEASE NOTE: Individual visits to Bottle Creek are not recommended due to the threat of wild animals and the protection of this historic site. If you do visit, please remember to "Leave No Trace."
