Mound in Mound Cemetery

Located just west of Romney, WV, on U.S. 50, in Hampshire County, the Indian Mound Cemetery features a low mound some seven feet high and about 15 feet in diameter -- one of the largest remaining mounds in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. The mound has never been excavated but similar Native American mounds in the area which have been investigated by the Smithsonian Institution suggest it might date between A.D. 500 and 1000 and have been constructed by Hopewellian peoples.
