Camden Park Mound

The Camden Park Mound at Camden Park in Huntington, West Virginia, in Cabell County, is an Adena burial mound located near the mouth of Twelvepole Creek. A second mound stood just east of the park but was leveled during construction of the Ohio-and-Big Sandy Railroad right-of-way.

The flat-topped, conical burial mound is the largest mound in the Huntington area and is third in size in West Virginia. It has not been excavated. It was probably built by the Adena people between 1000 B.C. and A.D. 1.

Several other so-called "Indian Mounds" were located in Huntington at one time. One was located on Thirteenth Street, and another is said to have been located at the peak at Gobbler's Knob. Both were leveled during the construction of Huntington streets. Three small mounds were located about a half mile upstream of the mouth of the Guyandotte River but were apparently destroyed as new streets, homes, and businesses were built.
