Reverse reads: "Aerial view of Serpent Mound largest serpent effigy mound in the world near Fort Hill Adams County" The Serpent Mound, containing three parts, extends approximately 1, 370 feet ((420m) and varies in height from less than a foot to three feet. It conforms to the land where it rests with its head approaching a cliff above a stream and its body winds back and forth over eight hundred feet with seven coils. It's tail ends in a triple coil. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on Oct 15, 1966. The serpent has an open mouth extending around the east of a 120 foot-long hollow oval feature. Some scholars theory is that the oval feature is an egg, the sun, the body of a frog, or the remnant of a platform.
