Story Mound is a prehistoric burial mound dating between 800 B.C. and 100 A.D. It was built by the Adena Indians as a ceremonial place. It is currently nearly 100 feet in diameter and twenty feet high, covering almost an acre. Archeologists note it because it represents the first documented example of such a structure connected to the Adenas. It was excavated in 1897.
