SEIP MOUND STATE MEMORIAL
SEIP MOUND STATE MEMORIAL
Bainbridge, Ohio   45612
(lat:39.2399 lon:-83.2208)
Seip Mound is the central mound in a group of geometric earthworks. Farming and erosion have degraded the surrounding earthworks leaving the central mound an outstanding feature. It is 240 feet long, 130 feet wide, and 30 feet high.

Excavations have revealed that prehistoric Indian buildings existed near the earthworks. Today, visitors can see the location of some of these buildings as they are outlined by short posts in the ground. The Hopewell Indians (100 BC-AD 500) built Seip Mound for burials. This culture had a highly developed craft industry, as is evidenced by artifacts found with bodies in the burial site.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 3 unhappy restrooms lost by Brian
I went to the meeting to save the restrooms. The state highway department had already made up their minds. They closed the restrooms since they were pit toilets and were being used for immoral purposes. The highway department maintained the restrooms and said people did not use them much anymore but went to businesses. I argued that some people traveling still used them to no avail
August 5 Not Happy with the upkeep of this site by Richard
Remembering back as a kid i had found memories of this place. Recently visited and it was sad to see that it has been neglected. Please tell me why??
May 21 use to be one of our favorite places by Cindy Kellough
Have held Cummings family reunions here for well over 50 years and just found out this year that the restrooms have been taken out, but the shelter houses are still there? I would like to know why there are no longer any restrooms and how could you spend a few hours there with your family without any place to pee?
