Know Before You Go

Key things to see or do while visiting the site:

If your interest in American Indian culture is piqued by your visit to Fort Ancient, consider traveling a little less than an hour to Sun Watch Indian Village/Archeological Park, a 13th century American Indian village. Through excavations, this village has been partially reconstructed and features a museum/interpretive center.

For your next trip, consider visiting the earthworks that populate southern Ohio: Story Mound, Hopewell Mound Group, Mound City, Tremper Mound, Seip Mound, Portsmouth Mound, Fort Hill, Piketon Mound, and Serpent Mound. The Warren County Convention & Visitor's Bureau website has information on lodging, food, and other activities in the area.
