Hopewell Culture National Historical Park partners with local organizations to fulfill its mission to preserve, protect, and interpret the remnants of the park's five earthwork complexes.
Ohio Historical Society
The Seip Earthworks unit is co-owned with the Ohio Historical Society to preserve these archeological and historical resources. The majority of visitor facilities at this park unit are managed by OHS.
Ross County Park District
Recreational trails at the Hopewell Mound Group are the result of a partnership with the Ross County Park District. This partner helped convert a mile of abandoned B & O railroad corridor to the Tri-County Triangle Trail.
Tri-County Triangle Trail
The multi-use trail at the Hopewell Mound Group is a partnership with the Tri-County Triangle Trail, a non-profit organization. The trail connects the towns of Chillicothe, Frankfort and Washington Court House via a 28+ mile paved section. Parking and restrooms are located adjacent to the trail at the park's Hopewell Mound Group facilities on Sulphur Lick Road. For more information about the Tri-County Triangle Trail, click here.
