It's free & the employees went out of their way to find records of our grandfathers who had trained at Camp Sherman for WWI. I did not realize or remember the part about the Army camp which we found very interesting. Amazing how the Indians were able to construct all of this by hand so long ago.

My wife and I visited this location on August 1, 2013 for our first time. The video is very good at highlighting the history behind the area.

So happy this site is in the hands of the National Park system. They are taking good care of it. There is a lovely path around the Mound City Group in the woods and by the Scioto River. Excellent for birding and quiet contemplation if you go early. Nice shop/welcome center/museum. We paired this with a visit to Thomas Worthington's home, Adena House about a mile away.

This is an Indian Mound burial site. The mounds themselves are just that mounds of dirt. The site itself is a little boring. If you continue on the trail that follows the river it is beautiful. This is calm relaxing spot. The people inside offer some history to the mounds that help with the tour. if you come here do your history first. It will help in knowing the value of the site.

Had a good time walking around the Mounds. The grounds were well taken care of. And it is free. Rest rooms were very clean.
