WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) met with a group of Ohioans advocating for the preservation of Ohio’s historical earthwork sites, including University of Cincinnati Professor Emeritus of Architecture John Hancock and Jack Blosser – site manager of the Fort Ancient Earthworks and Nature Preserve.

“It was an honor to meet with these advocates for preserving the important contributions of Native Americans to Ohio,” Brown said. “Ohio is home to many important historical sites that deserve worldwide recognition.”


The group, which included activists from across Ohio, attended his weekly coffee with constituents in Washington, D.C. These Ohioans are working to secure the Ancient Ohio Earthworks, which were created by Native Americans, recognition through the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) World Heritage List.
