The Great Hopewell Road: Ohio’s Ancient Superhighway

November 2, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Come visit the Cheers Chalet with the Fairfield County Heritage Association for an Ohio Humanities’ Speakers’ Bureau event with Brad Lepper!

The Great Hopewell Road was a set of parallel earthen walls built by the Hopewell people who lived in Ohio circa A.D. 1-  400. They began at the monumental Newark Earthworks and ran southwest in a remarkably straight line. The road’s ultimate destination is a mystery, but it may have been a route of pilgrimage connecting the two grandest centers of the Hopewell world: the Newark Earthworks and the many Hopewell mounds and enclosures near Chillicothe-more than sixty miles away.
