The Miamisburg Mound is one of the best know, major pre-historic features in Ohio. It is one of the
largest mounds east of the Mississippi River. As a result of excavations, the height of the
Miamisburg Mound has been reduced to approximately 70 feet. The circumference is 877 feet, with
a base that occupies about one and a half acres. In the early days of the settlers at Hole's Station,
now Miamisburg, the mound was densely covered with tall trees and a large maple tree was
growing from the top.
