Kansas City, Kansas: Downtown Burial Mound

A Native American ancestral grave site, left in place as the streets bend around it. No sense adding "vengeful wrath of Indian dead" to a city's infrastructure worries.

Huron Indian Cemetery

Indian burial ground in the center of city. The burial mound stood in the way of proposed widening of the main street, Minnesota Ave. so a deviation was made in the street. Bounded by the School Board Bldg., Huron Office Bldg. and Scottish Rite Temple.
