Adena Pipe

 

The Adena Effigy Pipe

The Adena Effigy Pipe is one of Ohio’s most famous artifacts – a human effigy connects us with Ohio’s past and bridges the gulf of time between ancient American Indian cultures and the present day.  It was discovered on the estate of Thomas Worthington, Ohio’s sixth governor who is often referred to as the “Father of Statehood”, and has become a hallmark of the Adena culture.

Today, students from the Columbus School for Girls have partnered with Ohio legislators to honor the Adena Effigy Pipe by officially naming it the State Artifact of Ohio.  What began as a classroom learning exercise has turned into Ohio House Bill 501 (HB501), which has received bipartisan sponsorship and is now making its way through the legislature to become law.
