Velda Mound is an archaeological site located in northern Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, United States. The site was first occupied by peoples of the Fort Walton Culture (a regional variation of the Mississippian culture) in the late prehistoric period and during the protohistoric period was part of the extensive Apalachee Province of the panhandle. The site is now owned by the State of Florida and managed as a park.
The mound is located in the Arbor Hill neighborhood within the sub-division of Killearn Estates.
There are tales of ghostly Indians sitting by a fire at night, and a white, glowing wolf that prowls the premises. Locals swear they hear it howling, night after night.
