STORY MOUND STATE MEMORIAL
STORY MOUND STATE MEMORIAL
Chillicothe, Ohio   45601
(lat:39.3419 lon:-82.9993)
Story Mound, of interest primarily to archaeologists, consists of a large, rounded earthen mound located on slightly less than an acre of ground in Chillicothe. This prehistoric burial mound stands 19.5 feet high, with a basal diameter of 95 feet. Erected by prehistoric Adena Indians (800 BC-AD 100) it was excavated in 1897 by Clarence Loveberry. It yielded the first documented example of a circular Adena timber building, a structural type now known as the norm in Adena ceremonial and domestic architecture.

Please note that the mound is surrounded by a chain-link fence and is not accessible.
