| October 10, 2014

NEWARK – The public has full access to explore the Octagon Earthworks at 125 N. 33rd St. in Newark all day Sunday, Oct. 12. This is one of only four days each year that allows such full access to the public.

Ohio State University’s Newark Earthworks Center will host an open house and guided tour at the Octagon Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m., with guided tours of the site.

Special guest for the open house include artist Candi Wesaw and other citizens of the Potagon Band of Potawatomi Indian Nation.

An official center of The Ohio State University, the Newark Earthworks Center strives to protect and preserve Ohio’s ancient earthworks, and recognize Native American Indian achievements, past and present through public education projects. The Newark Earthworks are part of the Ohio Historical Society’s system of historic sites and museums across Ohio and are located at the Newark Earthworks State Memorial in Newark, Ohio.
