Early Picture of the Hopewell Necropolis at Mound City in Chillicothe, Ohio

Early photo of the Hopewell mound builders necropolis at Mound City in Chillicothe, Ohio before being leveled by the Ohio Historical Society and then only partially reconstructed.



Mound City today's mounds and earthworks are only a remnant of their former size.  The site is only partially mowed during the summer months, so it is preferable to go in the winter months. Photo from, "The Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancient Ruins in the Ohio Valley."
