Welcome to Seip Mound 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 Hopwell’s were very advanced for their time in developing crafts. The location of addition structures, no longer existent, are outlined with markers to provide visitors with a perspective of what the entire site once looked like.
