Wright Earthworks are geometrical enclosures built by the Hopewell Indians between 100 B.C. and 500 A.D. They were of religious and social significance to the Indians of the time. The remains measure approximately 50 feet in length. Although city expansion and development have eliminated portions of the Wright Earthworks’ original mounds and walls, vital parts of the complex have been preserved.
