Regarding Tendal Mound. The house atop the mound may be the second to have been built there, and the top of the mound may have been leveled before the structure was built. Local residents say the railroad bed now covers a smaller mound, but no supporting evidence has been found. Only a few artifacts have been collected near the site, which suggests that the surface on which the mound was built has been covered with sediment from flooding.
