Return of the Snakes to Serpent Mound

Built by Native Americans at least 1,000 years ago, possibly even longer, Serpent Mound aptly demonstrates the fact that the ability of serpents to inspire and intrigue people is timeless. We will be displaying live snakes, turtles, and even a few amphibians to not only admire and gaze upon, but to touch and learn from. Naturalists from Hueston Woods and Shawnee State Parks and from the Arc of Appalachia will be giving educational presentations throughout the day, suitable for all ages.

For details see (Click on Events), or call Serpent Mound: 1-800-752-2757

Welcome to Adams County, Ohio.

Imagine a place that has the enduring coziness of a small-town atmosphere from days gone by, yet still resounds with the spirit of today. Imagine a place where you can take a long, easy step back in time to see the prairies that once covered portions of Ohio in the morning, play a round of golf, and watch the sunset over the Ohio River while sipping a glass of local wine.

You can find it in Adams County, Ohio. Find those spots where time stood still, like Blake's Soda Fountain, or wander through Amish shops in the Wheat Ridge Community. Or step back farther and walk along rugged cliff edges and creek beds created hundreds of thousands of years ago. Hike miles of trails or ponder the mysteries of the Great Serpent Mound.

Discover Appalachian handcrafts, quaint towns, or boat the Ohio River and the Ohio Brush Creek from sunup to sundown. Or just find a quiet bank and fish away the afternoon.

Relax beneath cool, comfy sheets at one of our many country inns, hotels, lodges, or cabins.

However you want to enjoy our county - exploring, discovering or finding that special place to just simply kick up your feet and relax - we have something just for you.
