This is a list of Hopewell sites. The Hopewell tradition (also incorrectly called the "Hopewell culture") was the common aspects of the Native American culture that flourished along rivers in the northeastern and midwestern United States from 200 BCE to 500 CE. The Hopewell tradition was not a single culture or society, but a widely dispersed set of related populations that were connected by a common network of trade routes, known as the Hopewell Exchange System.
Located near Houston, Mississippi, the site is a complex of six conical shaped mounds which were in use during the Miller 1 and Miller 2 phases of the Miller culture(100 BCE to 100 CE). and was built between 100 BCE and 100 CE. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 as part of the Natchez Trace Parkway at milepost 232.4.
