Native Americans[edit]

The site is noted for remains of a fortified Native American effigy mound settlement. The mound builder people's era ruins seem to be associated with the Woodland period Oneota and Cahokia cultures.


The Iowa Hartley Fort State Preserve land is privately owned, and there is currently no public access.
