In Partnership with Ohio History Connection

In 2009, the non-profit Arc of Appalachia Preserve System was honored to begin serving as the on-site manager for Serpent Mound in partnership with its long term and current owners, Ohio History Connection.

Ohio History Connection has stewarded the Serpent Mound park since the year 1900. The organization built the beautiful shelter house at the park, the museum, and the observation tower, and maintained the park, protecting the site for over a century.
