SITE MANAGER:
Jack Blosser

Fort Ancient features 18,000 feet of earthen walls built 2,000 years ago by American
Indians who used the shoulder blades of deer, split elk antler, clam shell hoes and digging
sticks to dig the dirt. They then carried the soil in baskets holding 35 to 40 pounds.
Portions of these walls were used in conjunction with the sun and moon to provide a
calendar system for these peoples. The site offers beautiful vistas along hiking trails as
well as the remains of the prehistoric mounds for visitors to see. Convenient picnic areas
can be found along the road at the site. The Museum at Fort Ancient, newly built and
containing 9000 sq. ft. of new exhibits opened on 22 March 1998. These new exhibits,
containing many interactive units, focus on 15,000 years of American Indian history in
the Ohio Valley. The Museum also contains a classroom, a research area, and a sales
shop with many fine American Indian items.

GROUPS

Group tours are available on a year round basis and can be fitted to the tour groups
schedule. A normal bus tour will take approximately 45 minutes. It will start at the north
end of the site and continue south to the south fort. People will have the opportunity to
get out of the bus to walk 200 feet to the North Overlook where the visitor will view
approximately three miles of the Little Miami River Valley.

As the bus is being driven through the site people will listen to a discussion of the site;
who built it, how it was built, why it was built, the first archaeologists who excavated
here, and much more. Of primary interest is the fact that the site features an astronomical
alignment system, and the mounds within the walled enclosure are not burial mounds.
Fort Ancient should be remembered as a place of ceremony, not a place of confrontation.

A 45-minute museum tour will follow the bus tour.

Location
Fort Ancient is seven miles southeast of Lebanon, in Warren County, on State Route 350.
Exit I-71 at Wilmington Road (exit 36) and take Middleboro Road south to State Route
350, turn right to the park.

LETS GO OUTDOORS
1. Bike Riding
The Little Miami Scenic Trail is over 72 miles long. The trail starts at Springfield in
Clark County. From there the trail runs South through Yellow Springs and Xenia in
Greene County. Then the trail travels through Corwin, Oregonia, Morrow and Loveland
in Warren County and finally to and Milford in Clermont County. The trail is expected to
be open to Clear Creek Park in Anderson Township by 2005. The Hamilton County Park
District has not acquired all of the land necessary to get from Clear Creek Park to Lunken
Airport so a scheduled date cannot be forecast. After the trail reaches Lunken Airport the
trail will have to be built South from there to the Ohio River and Cincinnati.

          Route North (From Xenia Station) - The Little Miami Scenic Trail to Yellow
       Springs starts at the Xenia Station and proceeds 9.7 miles North to Yellow
       Springs Ohio . From Yellow Springs the trail is seven miles from Yellow Springs
       to Springfield. The trail extension opened in 1998. The route now ends at I-70 one
       half mile South of John's Street in Springfield. The Yellow Springs Station is
       complete. There are restrooms in the Yellow Springs Station. These restrooms are
       open 24 hours a day.
          Route South - From the Xenia Station it is 11 miles (to the Greene County
       Line). The Southerly route to the county line, generally follows the route of the
       Little Miami River through Spring Valley and the Greene County portion ends at
       the Roxanna-New Burlington Road which is the border between Greene County
       and Warren County. The trail extends South to Corwin, Morrow and currently
       ends at Milford in Clermont County an additional 40 miles or so.
