CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionHopewell Culture National Historical Park preserves several of the earthworks of the ancient American Indian culture we call the Hopewell. The Hopewell culture was centered on Chillicothe from about 200 BC to AD 400. This unique culture built geometric earthworks of various shapes as well as mounds. Their finely crafted artifacts are evidence of extensive interactions with inhabitants of areas as far apart as the Gulf of Mexico and the Rocky Mountains. These features provide insights into the political, economic, and spiritual lives of the Hopewell Culture.

The National Park operates five-sites located in Ross County. These sites are part of the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks nomination which is working to be in-scripted as a World Heritage destination.
