Kinsey Road Mound Preserve – Xenia, Ohio

I visited this small, quiet, and unique Adena Mound when I was attending the Amateur Radio Hamvention in 2017.  It is just about a 1/2 mile east of Xenia High School.  Take Highlander Drive south off of Kinsey Road.  These pictures were taken from the Mound Ct. Cul-de-sac just off of Highlander Drive.  You can park on the Cul-de-sac, but not directly in front of the mound entryway according to the road parking signs.   I was able to walk around the mound and see some of the encircling embankment which I believe may qualify this site to be called a Henge or Hengiform monument.  There are some trails that lead down to the Oldtown Creek and loop through the small preserve.  Lat/Long Coordinates are (39.710474,-83.912942).   Click on the images to see a larger view.
