Heather and I searched it out today. Over the years it has been called Sugarloaf Mound. It was 2009 when the Osage Nation purchased it. It is located on Ohio St. south of I-55.
When we got there we parked the car. There were "No Trespassing" signs posted. We were taking photos from the Street when the woman who lives next door pulled out of her driveway. She stopped by us and rolled down her window. "Are you looking for the caves," she asked. Apparently some people had contacted her about showing them where the entrances to the old caves were on the property. We told her we weren't, we were just looking at the Mound. She told us to feel free to roam around. The signs were just to keep the kids out. So we did.

I know the plan had been for the area to become an historical interpretive site. These things take time. I hope it comes to pass.
