Old Jonesboro & Bessemer Indian Mounds - Jefferson county
« on: February 26, 2011, 05:51:51 PM »
spent the day riding around Bessemer, looking for Jonesboro, and should have made  stop into the library first.

Found out from the curator of the Bessemer Hall of History the difference between Old Jonesboro, and Jonesboro.

Gonna try to grab some pics Monday of the area where the Old Jonesboro and indian mounds were excavated

here were my best stops today:

As a matter of fact, that is where I went today, snapped some pics, rode around the treatment plant, and up to the old old Indian mounds.  This is what I found:

Burial mounds were on this spot, according to the gentleman at the Hall of History
