Ohio Mounds in Adams County

History of Adams County, Ohio, 1900
About one-half mile north of Winchester is a fine mound and three circles, the walls of which were when first discovered about five feet high. These circles are about 150 feet in diameter. At the crossing of Seventh and Broadway in the town of Manchester stood a most beautiful mound twenty-five feet high and perfect as a cone. It is said the Ellison heirs who owned the land had this beautiful tumulus dug down and carted away.

Burial Mound in Adams county, Ohio is still visible, but the earthworks that was located behind the house has been destroyed.
