Inscription.
McGuffee has as many as 6 mounds on the west bank of the Ouachita River. Several of the mounds are well preserved and visible from the road. A C-shaped earthen ridge encloses the mounds. Radiocarbon dates suggest Indians built these earthworks around AD 600. However, people lived here as early as 1400 BC.
