The Williamson Mound Archeological District is an archaeological site in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Ohio. Located north of Maud in Butler County,[3] the mound appears to have been the work of peoples of the Hopewell tradition.[4]

Although a small hole was dug into the top of the Williamson Mound at some point before 1972, the mound remains in premium condition. It sits atop a ridgeline above an intermittent stream in a rural part of increasingly urbanized Butler County.[4]

As one of the best preserved Hopewell mounds in its region, the Williamson Mound is potentially a significant archaeological site.[4] For this reason, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[2]
