Governor Signs Adena Pipe Designation

May 17, 2013

A two-thousand year old pipe from the ancient Adena culture is now the state's official artifact.

Governor John Kasich signed the legislation Thursday alongside a case holding the pipe, in front of dozens of students from the Columbus School for Girls.

The prehistoric pipe linked to the Adena culture was found in 1901 in a burial mound near Chillicothe.
