Spiro Mounds: a Story of Pre-Historic Oklahoma

by The 100 Companies

A vast civilization once stood on the banks of the Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma. Initially a small farming village, Spiro Mounds fueled its expansion and became one of the most important regional centers in the Mississippian culture. Spiro’s trade network spread from the Rocky Mountains to the Virginia coast and from the Great Lakes to Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center gives visitors a unique glimpse into the culture of these prehistoric Native peoples. Museum exhibits, guidebooks and walking trails immerse visitors in this fascinating period of Oklahoma history.
