About the Park

Established in 1923, the Hopewell Culture NHP is located on land that many different tribes used as a gathering place. Nearly 2000 years ago, these Indigenous tribes built dozens of monumental mounds and earthen enclosures in southern Ohio. These earthwork complexes were ceremonial landscapes used for feasts, funerals, rituals, and rites of passage associated with an American Indigenous religious movement that swept over half the continent for almost 400 years.

Color Inspiration

The Hopewell Culture NHP colors are reminiscent of the views that can be seen throughout the park; the greens of the rolling hills created by the mounds, paired with the bark of the trees and the greens of the leaves.
