An opportunity to learn more about our local national park is coming up in week and a half. Kevin Coleman spoke to Teressa Reep, a member of the "Friends of Hopewell Culture National Park."
They are offering "lively conversation" 6pm Thursday, April 21st. They'll answer questions about the park that preserves several prehistoric earthworks, explain how to help the effort, and give news on the process to give the earthworks international recognition.
Reep explains why it will be at Old Capitol Brewing at 79 North Paint Street: A lone Adena mound stood there when Chillicothe was founded, but it was eventually leveled. Though the mound is gone, she said the renovation of the building is a great example of preservation.
She says there will be three big events coming up, for only members of the Friends.
