Lizard Mound is one of the most well-preserved Native American effigy mound sites in the nation, with 28 extant conical and linear mounds on the property. The property's effigy mounds have been interpreted as representing spiritual and/or animal-like forms, including bird, panther or water spirit, and the eponymous lizard.
