Welcome to Flint Ridge, Ohio  

A site of the Ohio History Connection


Flint Ridge is a deposit of flint approximately 3 x 9 miles running in an East-West orientation. The layer is 2 - 10 feet thick. More than 10,000 years ago, Native Americans

quarried the flint from pits still visible on the quarry trail. They fashioned many different types of stone tools from this material including knives, spearpoints, and arrowheads. Flint was vital to their survival. An excavated pit can been seen inside the museum.

Out of continued concern for safe social distancing during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Flint Ridge has made the difficult decision to open the museum only by appointment for groups of less than 10 during 2020.
**Appointment availability begins after July 24th. Also, due to limited staff availability, we require a two week notice for tour scheduling.

The park's grounds and trails will continue to be accessible during their usual hours of dawn to dusk. 

During this time, we will also be developing new online content, so please return to this website!



Coming soon we will have a selection of unusual books and gift shop items that are available to purchase. We are hoping to have online ordering information for these items available here as well.
