The Hopewell Culture National Historical Park preserves six separate sites of monumental earthenworks built by the Hopewell Indians that thrived here. Four are open to the public. Mound City Group is fully-restored and consists of a 13-acre earth enclosure in a curved rectangle shape. Nestled inside are more than 20 mounds. The visitor center offers a wealth of information on the history of the Hopewell Culture, artifacts that were found here and how the mounds may have been constructed and used. Walk through the sacred site and on a paved path along the Scioto River to marvel and wonder how these monumental earthenworks were built to such a large scale without modern machines. Free entrance.
