: Leo Petroglyphs, shown in this photograph, are outstanding examples of prehistoric Indian inscriptions. On the edge of a beautiful ravine, a sandstone formation bears 37 incised drawings of humans, animals, and human and animal footprints. It is now protected by a roof and viewing platform. The carvings, the meanings of which are unknown, are attributed to Fort Ancient Indians who occupied what is now Jackson County between AD 1000 and 1650. Named for the nearby town of Leo, the site is managed by the Ohio Historical Society. This photograph measures 8" x 10" (20.32 x 25.4 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
