Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park

1207 Emery Hwy
Macon, GA 31217

The region along the Ocmulgee River saw over 17,000 years of continuous human habitation and over 2,000 artifacts have been recovered from the site. There are also new exhibits at the park’s visitor center that feature traditional skills and art by citizens of The Muscogee (Creek) Nation. The Nation now resides in Okmulgee, Oklahoma after being forced out of the region due to the Indian Removal Act in the 1830s. Local organizations such as the Ocmulgee National Park and Preserve Initiative (ONPPI), Ocmulgee Mounds Association (OMA), Visit Macon, and elected officials are working with The Muscogee Nation to tell the story of the people and land accurately and respectfully.
