Enclosing 50 acres, the Octagon Earthworks has eight walls, each measuring about 550 feet long and from five to six feet in height. This is a National Historic Landmark and Ohio’s official prehistoric monument.

Exhibits:
Up Close with U.S.-Mexico Border Barriers: 
A Photo Exhibit by Kenneth Madsen


Up Close with U.S.-Mexico Border Barriers: A Photo Exhibit by Kenneth Madsen
"For some the existence of the U.S.–Mexico border fences and walls only recently gained their attention, but Kenneth Madsen, associate professor of geography at The Ohio State University at Newark has had an eye on them for over 20 years. His research has resulted in an extensive collection of photographs and maps.

The exhibit photographs showcase the varying types of barriers along the border and places them in geographic context for communities unable to see the fences and walls in person. Maps accompanying the exhibit are the result of Madsen’s realization of the need for a comprehensive look at the laws being waived for border barrier construction."
