Ohio Tourism: Off the Map Burial Mound Sites

Ohio Tourism: Off the Map Burial Mound Sites

Traveling to Mound City in Chillicothe, or the Seip Mound or Fort Hill?  These are the mounds that you will pass on the road and miss, if you don't know where to look.

Nothing epitomizes the Indian burial mounds and earthworks in the State of Ohio like the Bainbridge mound, located only a few miles to the east of the Seip mound and earthwork.  The large Bainbridge Mound is located just before the S.R. 41 turn off of S,R. 51 that will take you to Fort Hill.  The Bainbridge mound is overgrown and not marked.  Why?  


Heading towards Fort Hill you will pass another two large mounds at Cynthiana, just a few miles south of the Bainbridge mound on S.R. 41.  These are also not marked and being destroyed by the farmer who uses the mounds as fill dirt.  
Sadly, many of America's antiquities are located in Ohio. Ohio tourism departments aren't smart enough to realize the treasure trove travel destinations that are available to them for the small price of having a sign and a mower to keep the ancient sites visible.
