Marietta Works map
Description: Map of the Marietta Works by surveyor Charles Whittlesey, 1837. The Marietta Earthworks site is a large Hopewell culture (100 BC-AD 500) ceremonial center located at the confluence of the Muskingum and Ohio rivers in Washington County. Originally, it included a large square enclosure surrounding four flat-topped pyramidal mounds, another smaller square, and a circular enclosure with a large burial mound at its center. Three segments of the original Marietta Earthworks are maintained as public parks today, and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. View on Ohio Memory.
