Description

Flint Ridge contains quarry pits where all of the ancient people of Ohio came to get flint for both tools and weapons. The flint was also a trade item for many of these people. The flint was especially prized by the Hopewell Culture for its quality and beauty. A walk through the site brings home how hard people labored to remove this material from the earth.

The forest itself is worthy of attention. The hardwood forest has some magnificent examples of the trees that created a leafy canopy over much of Ohio. Wildflowers in the spring and colors in the fall all are part of the site. Many species of wildlife abound in the forest as well.

The museum at Flint Ridge is built around a restored prehistoric quarry pit and explains both the digging and shaping of flint. The unique geology of the area is also a feature of the displays. The site includes a museum shop that features flint, Ohio's state gemstone.
