Recreation Department Excavates Indian Mound

Northeast Ruse

April 1, 2017

The ancient Indian burial site located below the Indian Mound near Gladstone Boulevard and Belmont was excavated by the city’s Recreation and Parks Department yesterday after a series of buried automobiles was discovered by a man walking his dog.

“We really didn’t know what to expect,” said department spokesperson Rory Davis. “It really has proven to be somewhat of a treasure trove in terms of artifacts excavated from the site.”

A city contractor moved heavy equipment to the site on Friday and excavation began in earnest Saturday April 1st. Neighborhood Association officials were unavailable for comment.
