This Day in Georgia History

June 14, 1934

Ocmulgee National Monument Created

Franklin D. Roosevelt signed legislation creating the Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon, Georgia - the third national monument created by Congress. Beginning in 1933, the Works Progress Administration funded an archaeological investigation of the complex of Mississippian Indian mounds near the eastern banks of the Ocmulgee River. Archaeologists and 800 Civilian Conservation Corps workers participated in the excavation.
