Description: Dated to the 1920s or 1930s, this hand-tinted lantern slide shows part of the base of the conical Great Mound at Mound Cemetery in Marietta, Ohio, in Washington County. The Great Mound is part of the Marietta Earthworks, a mound complex built ca. 100 BC-AD 500 by the Hopewell, an ancient American Indian cultural group that inhabited parts of Ohio and surrounding areas. The Great Mound, or Conus, was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 23, 1973. Mound Cemetery is also known for the many soldiers of the American Revolution buried there.
