Grave Creek Mound is one of the largest and most famous of the burial mounds built by the Adena people. A massive undertaking, construction of the mound required the movement of more than 60,000 tons of earth.

Artifacts and exhibits interpreting the lifestyle of the Adena people are displayed in the Delf Norona Museum adjacent to the 2,000-year-old mound.
Opened in 1978, the museum also features a gift shop, a theater that offers theatrical and musical performances along with a fine art gallery.

Conveniently located 15 minutes south of Wheeling, WV, just one block east of
Rt. 2.
