The Batesville Mounds site in on the National Register of Historic Places, located in Batesville, Mississippi, and encompasses sites occupied by people during the early to middle Woodland Period (500 BCE to 500 CE).


There were originally seven mounds at the site, but two remain in good condition today, with two others visible but greatly eroded. Mound C is the largest, still standing around 20 feet tall, while there are borrow pits visible by Mound B.
