I visited the mound last Sunday. We looked at the war memorial for my grand sons school project. The memorial was okay, the seating around the memorial was toppled over and laying in pieces on the ground. I guess we don't get to sit and ponder those that died for our freedom.

I was surprised to learn about the Mound and the Adena Indians buried there. Hard to believe it was carbon dated back to 400 BC.

There's really not much to see here, but the city has done a good job with a short trail to the top and excellent interpretive signs along the path circling the bottom. It was the only thing to see that was walking distance from my hotel.

Several historical markers are placed at the Mound and on 8/9 17 the city will be celebrating the city's 100th birthday at the mound with cake lemonade and ice cream and later burying a historical marker to be opened 100 years later

This is a trip back to ancient times in an unexpected location. This was excavated by the Smithsonian museum. Everyone should see this at least once.

Walked to the top while in the area, interesting site but suggest that you read the history of it before visiting.

This is one of many sites in the WV area however, like many this has been turned into more of park than a monument. Very little respect for Native Americans is shown by those who visit and the city.

The Adena Mound is very interesting to see and learn about the history of this area. When you couple the information provided at this site its helps to put the history of this area in perspective. The location of this site is very close, across the street from several good places to eat.

Good interpretation info. Interesting to see an Indian mound in an urban environment. Easy & quick access from interstate.
