Mounds State Park
Located near Anderson, Indiana, Mounds State Park preserves 10 earthworks built by the Adena-Hopewell people, a prehistoric indigenous people of eastern North America. These ancient structures were used for religious ceremonies and astronomical observations.
The Adena and Hopewell cultures inhabited Central Indiana before European settlers arrived. Archaeologists have made many discoveries about the people who populated America before Europeans. The Adena culture was the first to create mounds in the area.
The Bronnenberg family farmed the land and preserved the earthen structures. They donated the property to the state in 1930. Now the park has six hiking trails and a nature center. There are picnic areas, fishing, and camping facilities. There are also numerous streams and wildlife.
The visitor’s center has small animal displays. There is a stuffed animal exhibit and a nature watching room. It is open nine-thirty to four-thirty daily.

Clan Anderson Society Coat of Arms
During the early 1600s, Lord Lyon King of Arms awarded the Anderson family Coat of Arms. The blue shield with silver crescent and wolf is surrounded by a red engrailed saltire.
The Anderson family had a significant presence in North America, particularly in Virginia and Ohio. The Andersons may have been anglicized from Scandinavian surnames.
The Andersons of Western Ardbeck, Stobcross, and Dowhill are some of the more prominent clan lines. They have also produced a great deal of historical records. These clans have no known chief, though the name may have been associated with them.
The Anderson name is said to come from St Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. It is a common name in Scotland. In other countries, the name is found in Andersoone, Andersson, Andersons, and Andersen.
