Owner description: The mystery and beauty of this well-preserved earthworks is upset by the golf course surrounding it.

We attended one of the open houses held at Octagon. They close down the golf course and archeologists lead people out through the incredible earthworks, the largest geometric earthworks in the world! We were so impressed at the huge perfect circles at the site, and of course the acres big octagon. We never imagined something so important archeologically, here in Ohio. Try to visit on an Open House day when you can actually walk out across the area and explore inside of these amazing mounds, you can't help but be moved.

This is what has survived from a complex and incredible earthwork grouping that extends well into central and southern Ohio. The story of the Ancient peoples in Ohio is a story of incredible accomplishments in organization and building of complex system of sites being considered as World Heritage Sites. These areas are of greatest interest to those interested in these aspects of our culture.
