features 10 unique “earthworks” built by a group of prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the “Great Mound”, is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys seem to indicate it was used as a gathering place for religious ceremonies. The nature center is located in the Bronnenberg House, which is one of the oldest buildings in Madison County. The building is open to park visitors from April through October.
