History & Culture

Do you wonder what a Petroglyph is or why it was made? Hopefully we can answer these questions on this website or during your visit.

Southern Ohio's history led to an incredible blending of cultures that have been here for thousands of years to the more recent people of European descent who have been here for the past 2 centuries.

However it was the group known as the Fort Ancient Culture that is credited with making the Petroglyphs you see here today. They lived in Southern Ohio from about 1000AD to about 1650AD.

Enjoy your visit to the park and to the wonders of the Leo Petroglyphs.
