Blair Mound is a historic archaeological site located near Winnsboro, Fairfield County, South Carolina. Blair Mound is an earthen mound structure in the form of a low, oval hummock. It measures approximately 75 yards by 50 yards and is just over 5 feet high. The mound was constructed on the site of a late Woodland trash midden and represents a late phase of the widespread Mississippian Culture Pattern apparently existing in the period of A.D. 1300-1400.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
