Visitors are gathered around the foot of the Jeffers Hopewell Prehistoric Mound located in Worthington. The mound is located on part of the original Scioto Company land purchase. The land belonged to William Vining, a Scioto Company subscriber. It remained in the Vining family until the 1920's, when it was sold to Herman Jeffers. The earthworks surrounding the mound were destroyed when the land was converted into farmland from pastures. The mound was given to the Worthington Historical Society through the Herman Plesenton Jeffers Trust in 1974. The trees on the mound help stabilize the structure.
