Moundsville

Grave Creek Mound

Directly across the street from the Penitentiary is the Grave Creek Mound.

This is the world famous burial spot of the Adena people. These people walked the Earth before the Christian era. There also is an interesting museum adjacent to the Mound.

The Cockayne Farm

Built around 1850 this restored home was the residence of a respected sheep breeder. Many interesting gardens and plantings surround the home. Worth the visit. Call for times.

The Palace of Gold

This is the temple of the world for the people of Krishna.

While not a follower this spot is one of great beauty. There are lovely rose gardens and you are able to tour the church at selected times.

There is an Indian restaurant on the grounds.

And beautiful rose gardens..
