On Saturday, August 9, 2008, the Man Mound Archeological Site was rededicated by the organizations that were responsible for its preservation: the Sauk County Historical Society, the Wisconsin Archaeological Society and the Wisconsin Federation of Women’s Clubs.
“Only one effigy mound in the shape of a human being has survived nearly intact. It is located near the base of a high hill in Man Mound County Park, to the northeast of Baraboo. Probably built more than 1,000 years ago, this huge mound is in the form of a walking man who has horns or is wearing a horned headdress, such as a buffalo-horn headdress, which is characteristically worn by Native American shamans in more recent times.” From: Indian Mounds of Wisconsin by Robert A. Birmingham and Leslie E. Eisenberg, p.205.
