Irene Mound was a major funerary and ceremonial mound for Native Americans. It was occupied probably until circa 1400. Over 278 burials were uncovered at the site. This was the first Native American skeleton found. Seven Caucasians were also found there, probably Moravian missionaries or members of the Elberton family.
