Miamisburg Mound photograph
Description: Photograph taken by the Ohio Historical Society Division of State Memorials in 1936, showing the Miamisburg Mound historical site. Several men and horses are seen in the foreground. The Miamisburg Mound is the largest conical burial mound in Ohio and possibly in the eastern United States. Archaeological investigations of the surrounding area suggest that it was constructed by the prehistoric Adena Indians (800 B.C.-A.D. 100). Built on a 100-foot-high bluff, the mound measures 877 feet (267.3 m) in circumference. It was originally more than 70 feet (21.33 m) high. View on Ohio Memory.
