Hopewell Culture National Historical Park is a United States national historical park with earthworks and burial mounds from the Hopewell culture, indigenous peoples who flourished from about 200 BC to AD 500. The park is composed of six separate sites in Ross County, Ohio, including the former Mound City Group National Monument. The park includes archaeological resources of the Hopewell culture. It is administered by the United States Department of the Interior's National Park Service.

In 2008, the Department of the Interior included Hopewell Culture National Historical Park as part of the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks, one of 14 sites on its tentative list from which the United States makes nominations for the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

  • We toured the Hopewell NHP and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the grounds & the visitor center. Definitely take time to watch the video to give you more background information on this...

  • The rangers were great. They knew about the area and wanted to share. There is a presentation in the rear of the display room that is addictive. You self select topics about the Hopewell and then through video clips you can drill down for more information. The outside area was easy to manage.
  • The wildflowers were blooming and the park rangers were great with our kiddos. It was a neat place to spend a few hours and have a picnic lunch.
