Established in 1893, Indian Mounds Park is one of the oldest parks in St. Paul. The park’s name comes from the American Indian burial mounds that were found here by early settlers. These included 2,000-year-old Hopewell mounds, while others were constructed by the Dakota much later. Originally, there were 36 mounds in the park, but due to shortsighted construction projects and vandalism, only 6 remain in the park today.
