This Hopewell-style burial mound dates to A.D. 160+80. Thousands of similar mounds are located in the Ohio River Valley where the Hopewell lived in small scattered settlements from about 200 B.C. to A.D. 500. The Hopewell mound builders were great traders and very artistic people who were known to have associated with and influenced people far from their Ohio homeland. This is one of the few burial mounds found in western New York and southern Ontario. Who was buried here and why remains a mystery. Please respect this sacred burial area. Hopewell influence spread from central and southern Ohio throughout the region shown in orange. The Hopewell trading network extended over even greater distances. Stars and cross hatching indicate the sources of trade materials. Map clarified by Arthur W. McGraw, 1995.
