The Watch House is sort of hidden by some trees. It is no longer gold colored.

Watch House, Circle Mound: Tree Dangler

About 100 yards away from the Watch House And Circle Mound is a sculpture of a boy hanging from the limb of a tree. Completely random, and don't know the history behind it.

Watch House.

Watch House and Circle Mound

A strange spherical observatory sits on the edge of 200 ft. diameter landscape circle. The observatory is a 20 ft. x 24 ft. house made of copper, bronze and stucco. Holes have been cut into the dome top in the shape of household items that project sunlight down into the house. The Watch House and Circle Mound are the work of artist Todd Slaughter, created in 1999. The house is intended to meld imagery from modern culture with the area's native traditions and culture.
