Miamisburg Mound

Miamisburg Mound

in Ohio.

The Miamisburg Mound is a large Native American conical burial mound constructed by the culture that archaeologists refer to as Adena.  The mound is almost 70 feet tall, and is virtually intact....
The mound tomb was constructed approximately 2500 years ago, as one of many similar mound earthworks. Excavated in 1869, found bark covered skeleton and a chamber located 28 feet deep into the mound, but found empty.

The Adena people flourished between 1000-200 BC, and found their homes across what is now Ohio, Indiana, West Viginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York. There a several existing mounds and an estimated 200 Adena related sites scattered throughout their territory.
