Inscription.  Flint Ridge Ancient Quarries, Nature Preserve and Museum give visitors a window into the lives of the pre-contact American Indians who quarried the flint here from 14,000 to around 400 years ago. The name "Flint Ridge” refers to the multi-colored flint that was a key natural resource for Indians who used it to shape their spear points and arrowheads. Today flint is Ohio's official gemstone.
