Germantown, Ohio Serpentine Earthen Hopewell Enclosure

Germantown, Ohio Serpentine Earthen Enclosure

The serpentine gateway at Spruce Hill was duplicated at several hilltop ceremonial centers, including the work at Germantown, Ohio.

Serpentine gateway of the Germantown hilltop earthwork is very similar to the Spruce Hill gateway. The approaches to this earthwork looked to be man made and undulated like a serpent.

Parts of the original wall that skirts the bluff are still visible in the winter months.
