Little Mountain Pictograph Site is a historic archaeological site located near Blackstone, Nottoway County, Virginia. It is a winter solstice observation site that probably dates post-1400 AD and is Mississippian. It was recorded and published by the Virginia Rockart Survey. The three glyphs are located inside a cave or shallow shelter. They are a track glyph, hand glyph, and undefined glyph that appears to be a sun. The glyphs are in shadow all year except during the winter solstice, when the sun travels far enough south to illuminate the inside of the wall containing the glyphs.
