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.

Such a beautiful and fascinating site to visit. The grounds have over 200 acres so prepare to walk around the mounds. The Hopewell Indians were a very sophisticated group of people for their time. The museum has a very informative video and displays. Great gift...More

I wasn't sure how interesting the earthworks would be -- maybe a, "Well, there they are!" kind of place. But it was fascinating, and we spent a couple hours there. I definitely recommend the visitors center as it provides plenty of info about the earthworks,...More

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

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.

Amazing site that is both peaceful and beautiful (even right next to a major highway) Built by people of the ancient Hopewell Culture between 100 B.C. and 500 A.D., this architectural wonder of ancient America was part cathedral, part cemetery and part astronomical observatory. The...More
