Athens County mound to be preserved
(2008-06-19)
(WOUB) - A national conservancy group now owns a piece of history in The Plains.

The Archeological Conservancy paid $40,000 for a piece of land containing a Native-American burial mound near Athens High School.

The Conservancy's Josh McConaughy says sites like this one help preserve history.

McConaughy says the mound is from the Adena era.

He says future plans for the land include a path for visitors.
