Established in 1936, Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park “preserves traces of over ten millennia of culture from the Native Americans in the Southeastern Woodlands.” There are great efforts underway to expand the National Historical Park, the Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, and the Ocmulgee River corridor from Macon to Hawkinsville into the first National Park and Preserve east of the Mississippi River.
