Roadside Mound is located in Brown County, Ohio in the community of Ripley. Fortunately, the mound has been preserved in Stivers Memorial Park.

Today, Roadside Mound is approximately four feet high and forty feet in diameter. The mound is covered in grass, with a lone tree growing from its summit. Archaeologists have not thoroughly investigated Roadside Mound, and they have not attributed this mound to a specific cultural tradition. The mound's location would suggest that it was a product of either the Adena or the Fort Ancient cultures.
