Welcome to Livonia, Louisiana !

The largest of the ten remaining Indian mounds in Pointe Coupée Parish, Louisiana is the Livonia Mound. At almost 31 feet tall, the conical mound is located in downtown Livonia near the east bank of Bayou Grosse Tete. Scientists believe that the mound served as a burial ground for several Native American settlements. Artifacts suggest the mound was used circa 400AD-1100AD.
