I am constantly amazed at the number of significant sites that are in the Midwest.  Recently, I came across the Blood Run site and though the information has been limited I was excited to see that it has become a State Park.  Future plans include a visitor’s center and hiking trails. Reading additional information I found that earlier accounts suggest there was a 1/8 mile in length earthen serpent effigy though no trace remains today.  My curiosity was peaked at the possibility that there may be two serpent mounds.  In earlier accounts it states that there were possibly 275 mounds in that area with only 80 visible today.   In the near future I will be visiting this site.  I hope to have further information and images to post.
