Who Am I?

I am one of the two largest conical mounds in eastern North America. I am listed on the National Register of Historic Places. I am 65 feet tall and 800 feet in circumference and contain 54,000 cubic yards of earth.

I have quite a history. Archaeological investigations of the surrounding area suggest that I was constructed by the prehistoric Adena Indians (800 BC – AD 100). I was built on a 100 foot high bluff in Ohio.
