Miamisburg Mound photographs
Description: Two 8" x 10" (20.32 x 25.4 cm) photographs of Miamisburg Mound near Dayton, Ohio were taken in the 1960s. The first photograph shows the mound, while a second photograph was taken from the top of the mound. 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.
