Inscription.  C. Z. Sutton came to the Oakwood Village in 1872 and in 1878 built a home on this site. It was dug into the hill so that the back and much of the sides were dirt. The front was field rock with mortar made himself by burning local limestone. The roof was made of poles overlaid with hay and dirt.—
This mound was made by Indians more than 800 years ago. They predated the Sioux who lived in the area when the pioneers first came here.
