About Campbell Memorial Park, Shrum Mound
Shrum Mound is one of the last remaining conical mounds in Columbus. Believed to have been built nearly 2,000 years ago by the Adena Culture, Shrum Mound stands 20 feet tall with a diameter of 100 feet. The mound was covered with grass and has trees growing from its side. A dirt path leads to the top of the mound where you can stand and enjoy the view. An old limestone quarry surrounds the park, except where it connects to the road. Shrum Mound closely resembles the Conus Mound in Marietta, also built by the Adena. Many mounds of this type were very common across the entire region, only to have fallen to agriculture and development.

Campbell Memorial Park (Shrum Mound) is located five miles northwest of downtown Columbus on the west side of McKinley Avenue, about 1/2 mile south of the intersection with Trabue Road. It is adjacent to an old limestone quarry in Franklin County.
