Archaeological ruins suggest that Indian Hill Site, an “address restricted landmark” in Beaufort County, in the U.S. state of South Carolina, was inhabited between 900 and 1400 AD.[2][3] The mound that dominates the area is over 13 ft (4.0 m) tall, with a basal diameter of 138 ft (42 m) (east-west), and 129 ft (39 m) (north-south). It is believed that the Indian Hill site served as a regional ceremonial center for religious, social and economic functions. The site was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on March 24, 1974.[1]
