I was in the area so I went by. It is a nice site to see. It looks like an earthen fort, but it is not. It is open during the daytime and no admission.

Visited all 3 areas of this huge set of geometric earthworks. Somehow they figured out how to orient the earthworks to the phases of the moon on an 18.7 year cycle.

The great circle mound is an amazing historic feature given the overall size of the main mound. It is a beautiful display of several species of trees and on many occasions we have encountered a variety of wildlife. Deer, fox, raccoon, possum, woodchuck, crows, hawks,...More

Museum was closed, so nothing to comment on here. It was a great peaceful hike around the mounds and a first time ever visit to "Eagle Mound" in the middle of the great circle. Marked as "Pre-Historic EarthWorks - Please stay off". It is a...More

Amazingly built by ancient native Americans as an astronomical calendar. This area is abound in unusually colored flint, and the gift shop sells polished flint. The visitors center shows a nice video about the history of the a Earthworks.

The Great Circle Earthworks at Heath, Ohio,are only a portion of the Hopewell Earthworks attributed to Native Americans some 2,000 years ago. However, this is the most accessible part of the surviving works since the Octagon not far away are now surrounded by a golf...More
