Welcome to Seip Earthworks near Chillicothe, Ohio. This is the central burial earthwork in what was once a much larger complex built by the Hopewell Indians between 100 B.C. and 500 A.D. Today, this geometrical archeological discovery measures 240 feet by 130 feet and stands about 30 feet high. Archeologists’ discoveries of artifacts buried with the Indians at this site indicate that the Hopwells were very advanced for their time in developing crafts. The location of additional structures, no longer existent, are outlined with markers to give visitors a perspective of what the entire site once looked like.

These Earthworks are part of the Ohio Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks UNESCO World Heritage Site. Click here to see more.
