Visitors Center at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park Reopened

The Mound City visitors center at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park is now open for limited hours.

The National Park Service announced that the visitor center north of Chillicothe on State Route 104 is now open 9 to 4 for access to the park museum and indoor restrooms. The bookstore and orientation video remain temporarily unavailable.

Ranger-guided programs includes tours of the earthworks at 10am and 3:30pm daily. And they say a 1:30pm program will offer a unique and intriguing perspective on the earthworks and the American Indians of the Hopewell culture.

No reservations are required for the visitor center, programs or tours. Upon arrival to Mound City Group visitor center, guests can proceed to the front desk for more information or to have questions answered. Guests attending ranger-guided tours are encouraged to visit the Park Website for information on weather and suggested things to bring on the tour. A water bottle is strongly recommended during the hot and humid summer months.

When entering the visitor center, they urge guests to follow the CDC's social distancing guidelines and stay at least six feet away from other people. If you are not fully vaccinated, (less than 2 weeks past your final dose) you must wear a mask inside of the visitor center and in crowded outdoor spaces. Additional public health measures will be seen inside of the visitor center, such as one-way directional decals on the floor to show guests the proper flow of foot traffic inside of the building.

For more information on summer daily tours or programs, you can contact them. Visit the park's Directions page for maps and detailed directions to the park. View the park Calendar for more information about this and other events.
