Welcome to Leo Petroglyphs State Memorial


Perched on a ridge in Southern Ohio on a large relatively flat sandstone rock are the remains of the most remarkable rock art in Ohio.

The rock surface includes between 30 and 40 different figures. Some representing humans, birds, a fish and others.

Leo Petroglyphs is owned by the Ohio Historical Society and is managed by the Jackson Historical Society.

Park Layout

The 12 acre park tract consists of a beautiful Heavy Timber Shelter house erected in the 1930s as a WPA project. It is built over the Leo Petroglyphs.

Adjacent is a stunning nature trail that, though limited in length is one of the most beautiful in all Ohio. There are picnic tables adjacent to the large asphalt area.
