This is Miamisburg’s number one roadside attraction. The mound is one of the two largest conical mounds in eastern North America and the largest prehistoric burial mound in Ohio. The mound is 65 feet tall and 800 feet in circumference. An empty chamber was found in 1869 about 28 feet deep in the mound. I climbed the 116 steps to the top of the mound enjoying the view. The mound sits atop a ridge above the Great Miami River next to a golf course.
