Miami Circle - Virtual Tour, Location 9H

Enlarged Item
Location 9H

Feature 162 is important because it is an area where the limestone has lost integrity creating a solution cavity similar to a “sinkhole.” Much of the dissolution of the limestone occurred before the Miami Circle had been carved by the Native people. This is demonstrated by a distinctive white rock at the southwestern corner of Feature 162; part of a rectangular basin was carved through this detached piece of limestone, which is only supported by soil and midden material.
