We went to Newark specifically to see the Great Field mound. We also went into.the museum which had interesting facts and timelines for the Hopewell tribe. It's fascinating to see the huge scope of all the mounds (most no longer exist), they stretched over several...More

Great place for taking a walk ==summer or winter. Once you get over the mound, it's all relatively flat so it's easy walking. Lots of very old history too. If it's warm and dry enough, take along a blanket and catch a nap under the...More

First and foremost, to fully appreciate this important site, you need to take a tour. However, even though tours are listed on the website, when we visited on a Friday--Friday!--none were available. This was really upsetting, as we knew we were seeing things extremely significant,...More

A great place to visit. Take a picnic with you as there are lots of tables to eat on. The inside of the circle will take you back in time, at least a place like this does that to me. There are a lot of...More

I wasn't sure how interesting the earthworks would be -- maybe a, "Well, there they are!" kind of place. But it was fascinating, and we spent a couple hours there. I definitely recommend the visitors center as it provides plenty of info about the earthworks,...More

If ancient history interests you, then this is the spot to visit in North America. The Great Circle Mound is a marvel on par with the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Easter Island or Stonehenge. Every solstice the mound marks the passing of the sun and...More

Native Americans built this in ancient times as an astronomical device. The circle is quite large and takes up a lot of space in the town. Go on a nice day to see and take a walk.

For those who are interested in viewing a small portion of how intelligent and architecturally wise the early Americans were. This is a small portion of a much larger complex stretching hundreds of miles. There are more sites near by.

The Great Circle and the Works museum are one of the few indicators left from what historians believe are the first civilization from the US - the Missippians, Hopewells, or collectively the Mound Builders. Awe sweeps over you as you stand within the circle of...More
