Pilot Mound – Prairie Landmark

Reid Dickie

Anything that suddenly rises 116 feet above the prairie gets noticed, every day ever since it was created, by some animal, some person, someone needing direction. That’s why it’s called Pilot Mound – it will safely and surely guide you toward your destination, your quarter section of unforgiving prairie to which you are now inextricably bound and legally committed to render arable, tamed, sane. Pilot Mound holds much more history than I am able to relate here but try here.
