Who are We?

In 2009, the non-profit Arc of Appalachia Preserve System was honored to begin serving as the on-site manager for Fort Hill in partnership with its long term and current owners, the Ohio Historical Society. The park features ancient earthworks, and 1200 acres of mature forest with eleven miles of hiking trails.

The Fort Hill Museum, run by a dedicated corps of volunteers, contains many interesting displays on the prehistoric people who inhabited the region, and on the park's noteworthy natural history.

More information about Ohio's ancient earthworks can be found at The Ancient Ohio Trail.
