Medicine Mound (singular) is named for four nearby cone-shaped dolomite hills called "Medicine Mounds" (plural), which rise some 350 feet above the surrounding plains. They were named by the Comanche Indians , who maintained that the mounds are the dwelling place of powerful, benevolent spirits, which can cure ills, assure successful hunts, and protect in battle. In an annual ritual the Comanche came to Medicine Mound with cedar incense taken from nearby Cedar Mound. The mounds are on private property but can be observed some five miles in the distance by vehicle.
