The earthworks at the site include a group of five platform mounds and two portions of an earthen embankment. Mounds A, B, C and D (which are between 3 feet (0.91 m) and 5 feet (1.5 m) in height) are located along the eastern edge of Maçon Ridge with a section of the embankment connecting three of them. The largest mound at the site, Mound E, measures 13 feet (4.0 m) in height, with the base being 150 feet (46 m) by 150 feet (46 m) and a summit of 130 feet (40 m) by 130 feet (40 m). It and another portion of embankment are located across a large plaza 300 feet (91 m) to the southwest of the other mounds. During investigations at the site artifacts from the Poverty Point culture were found under some of the mounds showing that people occupied this are at least as early as 1500 BC during the Archaic period. Radiocarbon dating of charcoal samples from one of the smaller mounds have been dated 400 and 1200 CE during the Late Woodland Troyville-Coles Creek period. The site part of the Poverty Point Reservoir State Park and is open to the public and accessible by foot.
