They oftentook the shape of animals or people, andare abstract in form. They are commonlyfound on elevated land near waterways, marshes, and lakes. Effigymounds were thoughtfully constructed, and believed to represent adeep and profound shared understanding of the origins and structureof the universe, and the interconnectedness between humans andtheir natural environment.The Observatory Hill mound group (see image below) originallyconsisted of at least five mounds. Two effigy mounds (a bird and aunique two-tailed water spirit) are located north of Agricultural Hall.Two additional mounds, whose surface features are no longer visible, arelocated lower on the Observatory Hill slope, below Observatory Drive.The fifth mound was destroyed during the construction of Ag Hall.The Discovery Building is dedicatedto exploring new ways to conduct andshare research and creative ideas.
