Field Trip to Flint Ridge & Newark Earthworks

July 25th, 2022
Meet at Museum at 8:30 AM

The Newark Earthworks are the largest set of geometric earthen enclosures in the world. Already a National Historic Landmark, in 2006, the State of Ohio designated the Newark Earthworks as “the official prehistoric monument of the state.” Interpretive signage around the park will help explain the significance of the site and why American Indians regard the Newark Earthworks as a sacred site.

Meet our leader John Boilegh at the museum (532 N. Chestnut Street, Barnesville, Ohio) to carpool and coordinate drive. There may be a donation request at the visitor center at Flint Ridge. After that, we will proceed to the Earthworks at Newark and Heath. They are only open to the public this one day in July. Lunch will be on your own. Hoping to see you there. This is a great opportunity to visit ancient sites in Ohio.
