Indian Mound


category : Natural Attractions
Indian Mound, a prominent point west of Lakin, Kansas, stands as it did many years ago when Joseph C. Brown, a government engineer and his surveying expedition made official note of it in 1825.

Back in the Trail's "Hey day", Indian Mound was much higher and larger. People digging for relics and such have hastened its erosion. At one time, it was visible from Lakin.
