Public Meeting to Discuss Serpent Mound

The Ohio History Connection and the Arc of Appalachia seek comments about proposed site management plan 
 
The Ohio History Connection and the Arc of Appalachia will hold a public meeting on April 21 to discuss a new site management plan for Serpent Mound.

WHERE:       Peebles High School, 25719 OH-41, Peebles, OH 45660

WHEN:        Tuesday, April 21 at 6-7 p.m.
 
A site management plan sets goals and priorities to guide decisions concerning the development, use, interpretation, study and preservation of a historic site. It also directs operations and maintenance to ensure the cultural and natural resources of the site are respected and protected.
 
This proposed plan will be used by the Ohio History Connection and local management organization, the Arc of Appalachia, to guide the day-to-day operation of the site and for making long-term decisions and plans for the benefit of the site.
 
Serpent Mound is an internationally known National Historic Landmark built by the ancient peoples of Ohio. Serpent Mound represents the peak of pre-contact effigy mound-building in North America. It has become an icon of indigenous cultural achievements in this region, chiefly because of its enormous scale and its remarkable resemblance to a serpent.
 
Comments on the proposed site management plan will be considered when defining the final site management plan for Serpent Mound.
 
The public comment period is from April 3 through April 21. Comments on the proposed plan will be considered if sent via email to [email protected] or if made in person at the public meeting on April 21.
