This is one of many sites in the WV area however, like many this has been turned into more of park than a monument. Very little respect for Native Americans is shown by those who visit and the city.

The Adena Mound is very interesting to see and learn about the history of this area. When you couple the information provided at this site its helps to put the history of this area in perspective. The location of this site is very close, across the street from several good places to eat.

Good interpretation info. Interesting to see an Indian mound in an urban environment. Easy & quick access from interstate.
