SUPCO To Hear Country Club's Appeal Involving Burial Mounds

Jul 9, 2020


The Ohio Supreme Court has agreed to hear a Licking County country club's appeal of orders that it sell back a lease to the state historical agency to provide public access to ancient burial mounds. 

A Licking County judge ruled last year the Ohio History Connection may reclaim the lease for the two-thousand-year-old Octagon Mounds from Moundbuilders Country Club via eminent domain. That ruling was upheld in January by the Ohio Fifth District Court of Appeals.
