1. The Boiling Spring Site
Inscription.  Once five significant mounds marked the site of an ancient Indian village here. The mounds were between Little Harpeth River and a branch of the Boiling Spring. When the four burial mounds were excavated in 1895 and again in 1920 artifacts were found dating back to the Mississippian period of indian culture in Tennessee. Relics from the second excavation were placed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. The ceremonial mound by Boiling Spring Academy was left undisturbed.
 
Erected 1977 by The Brentwood Rotary Club.
