1. History on the Hills Interpretive Center Marker
Inscription.  
The large wooded hill in front of you is a terminal moraine. It was created by a mile-thick glacier that covered Ohio more than 19,000 years ago.

The Interpretive Center was one of the original buildings at Carillon Park. It now shares stories about the history of the surrounding land, including its geological history, its use by the prehistoric Hopewell people, and as the location of Dayton's Quarantine Hospital for smallpox victims.

The Interpretive Center is also the starting point for the trail system that winds throughout the moraine and offers beautiful views of downtown Dayton and the surrounding area.

Built in 1949 in Carillon Historical Park.
