NJ Woosamonsa Burial Mounds
Marker Description: Woosamonsa is Leni Lenape for sacred place. There are multiple burial mounds here. See the photographs. Although this is on the private property of Trap Rock Industries, you can go ahead back there to see the burial mounds because it is a basic right of all Americans to go to such a sacred place.

The mounds are located where the marker is placed. Park on Woosamonsa Road.

My Dad found a burial mound back here when he was hunting. Once he realized that it was a burial mound, on the southern side of the mountain as was customary, he started to see many mounds. It is really cool and I don't think anyone really knows about it. "Run away to distant lands, burn the funeral fires..."
