“largest conical burial mound in Ohio”

The Miamisburg Mound is the largest conical burial mound in the state of Ohio and possibly in the eastern U.S. Archaeological investigations of the surrounding area suggest that it was constructed by the prehistoric Adena Indians (800 BC-AD 100). Built on a 100-foot-high bluff, the mound measures 877 feet in circumference. It was originally more than 70 feet high. Visitors may climb the 116 steps from its base to the summit for a view of the surrounding park. The 37-acre park has picnic tables and a playground. Miamisburg Mound is one of the two largest conical mounds in eastern North America. It is a burial mound built by the people that archaeologists have called the Adena culture (800 B.C. to 100 A.D.). Adena was the name Governor Thomas Worthington called his estate in Chillicothe, Ohio. It was at that estate that the first mound of this group of prehistoric Native Americans was excavated in 1901.

Just stopped by on our road trip from Detroit to New Orleans to California. I love little quirky, historical places like this. No one was there but it was a beautiful little park. The houses on the road up to it are gorgeous and my favorite part. The mound was cool, and the view was nice, but shouldn't take more than a half hour to check out. The park around it is very nice and good for kids and picnics. There is a big building on the street coming up called "The Mound Science and History building" or something like that. It looked interesting! definitely on the mediocre side of the radometer but still cool.
