Site #8: Tapering Mound #2
This is not an official mound site, but it was found by the Johns/Stekal survey in 1989. Archeological [sic]  studies of this possible mound site have not been done. Because of the agricultural destruction of many mound sites across the states of Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa, we may never know with certainty if this was a mound. Maybe this was part of the Charles Browns' Site 11, (a neighboring mound that has been so badly disturbed that its original shape can't be seen)?
The marker is located at Whitewater Effigy Mounds Preserve and is accessible from southbound South Indian Mound Parkway, south of its intersection with Old Highway 12 and at its T-intersection with Wildwood Road, at or near 288 South Indian Mound Parkway, Whitewater, Wisconsin 53190.
