Ancient Earthworks Tour

Come discover the ancient magic in your own backyard!

Ancient Earthworks is a guided walking tour for groups of 6 or more. It's great for both kids and adults.

GhostTrek

More than 2000 years ago the most advanced and sophisticated people in North America built grand pyramids, mounds and enormous geometric enclosures in the place we now call Marietta. Time and "progress" have destroyed portions of the original complex, but sacred places have a way of surviving. 

We'll visit flat-topped pyramids that bear an uncanny resemblance to Aztec temples; walk down a sacred road more than 20 centuries old; and stand atop The Quadranou Mound where ancient astronomer-priests studied the movements of the sun, moon and stars. We'll also explore enigmatic Mound Cemetery - the final resting place of Revolutionary War Patriots - and hear tales of lost tribes, refugees from Atlantis, giants, goblins, and buried treasure as we stroll along the shady brick streets of the Victorian neighborhood that surrounds the mounds.

The Ancient Earthworks Tour departs from Mound Cemetery's 5th Street gate (5th and Scammel Streets) every  second Saturday June through October at 10am.

Tour Information

Tour duration – approximately 90 minutes

The distance covered is just over 1.5 miles. Although much of the Ancient Earthworks Tour is over sidewalks, we walk through the grass and over some uneven terrain when we visit the Quadranou Mound. Comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended.

Cost - Adults $15.00; Children 12 and under $10.00; Cash Only. Exact change is greatly appreciated.

Urban History Hike

What clues to the past are hidden in the back alleys and brick passageways of downtown Marietta?

Urban History Hike 

Join Hidden Marietta’s local history guides on a walking tour in search for evidence of fires, floods and public improvement projects gone horribly wrong. We may even encounter a few faded ads for forgotten businesses and products that no longer exist. This tour is like stepping into a time machine, as you dig into a past that still lingers along the cobbled streets of Ohio’s oldest town.

Urban History Hike departs from the fountain at the corner of Front and Green Streets (across from the Lafayette Hotel) every Friday and Saturday afternoon at 3pm June-October. Tour duration – about an hour and a half

Cost - Adults $15.00; Children 12 and under $10.00; Cash Only. Exact change is greatly appreciated.
