The Adena Mound Builder's Glenford Fort is now Restored and Opened to the Public

 The Adena Mound Builder's Glenford Fort is now Restored and Opened to the Public

The central stone mound at the ancient Adena Glenford Ceremonial center has now been restored. The outer stone banks that were six foot high at one time have not been restored but you can see remnants of them in certain areas.

Located in Glenford, Perry County, on private property. It is a 27-acre Hopewell culture hilltop enclosure of sandstone boulders, not earthworks, in use between 100 B.C.-500 A.D.

Much of the central stone mound was recently destroyed by an Ohio archaeologist without the owners permission.  

The stone burial mound at Glenford Fort has now been restored. It is overgrown in the summer months so it's best to visit in the winter or late spring.
